Venice Day Trip from Milan
- Day trip (destination A to B)
- Soak up the atmosphere on a walking tour
- Led by a local guide
- Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
- Flexibility to customize your itinerary to your own preferences
Following your guide, weave around the throngs of street musicians, visitors, locals and pigeons who converge on the square, and stop for photos in front of its many monuments. Strike a pose by St Mark’s Basilica with its beautiful Byzantine façade, and gaze up at its bell tower with its distinctive green-and-gold peak. See Libreria Sansoviniana (the city library) and the clock tower, and then wander across to Rialto Bridge. Continue alongside the Grand Canal, and admire the elegant architecture of the grand mansions that line its banks.
In addition to Venice’s big-name sights, your walking tour also takes in some city gems that many visitors miss. Discover the calli, a labyrinthine web of narrow Venetian streets and canals, and learn about life in the city as a local.
After a break for lunch (own expense), visit a glass-making workshop near St Mark’s Square to see a skilled craftsperson creating glass vases. Browse the wares in the onsite shop after watching the demonstration and perhaps shop for well-crafted souvenirs to take home.
Last, but not least, why not finish your day in Venice with an optional 30-minute gondola ride around the Venetian lagoon? The ride by flat-bottomed gondola is considered a must-do Venice experience, and takes in several atmospheric side canals as well as a stretch of the Grand Canal. Alternatively, use the time to wander around the Venice streets at leisure.
Return to your coach at the prearranged time, and travel back to the start point in Milan where your tour finishes.

Venice is a beautiful city, with lots to see. This is a long day but worth it.
On a Sunday St Marks is closed in the morning and you will experience long queues, they do move quickly and it is worth the wait.
The gondola is overpriced but it's something you feel you must do once!
A nice way to spend the day but be prepared for the crowds.
