If you only have 1 day in Venice, Italy, then make the most of it with this tour – and save money in the process!
The Skip the Line: Venice in One Day Including Boat Tour, which you can purchase through Viator, combines more than one tour, and by paying both together you’ll save 8%!
It is also the perfect tour if you are only in Venice for one day because it is designed to get everything in during one day.
You’ll start with a 2-hour walking tour which includes the famous monuments of St. Mark’s Square & you’ll learn about the history of St. Mark Square & Rialto Bridge from your guide.
Next you’ll visit St. Mark’s Basilica, and this tour not only includes admission but it also gives you skip-the-lines privileges, which is great because not only will you not have to deal with the annoyance of waiting in a long line but you’ll also have more time to explore Venice since you only have one day!
You’ll then follow your guide around the backstreets of Venice and you’ll be able to see great Venice sites, like Scuola Grande di San Marco, Campo Santa Maria Formosa, an age-old merchants warehouse, a wellhead and Marco Polo’s House.
You’ll then part from your guard at Rialto Bridge, and then you’ll get some free time to explore the city.
You’ll end your day by taking a 1-hour taxi cruise along the Grand Canal, where you’ll learn about the palaces & churches you see during your cruise as well as famous residents who have lived there.
By the end of the day, you will have seen iconic Venice landmarks, learned a lot about the city and had a lot of fun!
