Venice is—without question—one of the most beautiful and unique cities in the world. Its iconic canals infuse the city with an air of antiquity, reinforced by the presence of ornate palazzos that go back centuries. Your stay includes a walking tour of the city that showcases the great Doge’s Palace and the Bridge of Sighs, so coined because it once led unfortunate souls to their fate in the prison. You’ll also enjoy skip-the-line entrance to Venice’s most famous site, St. Mark’s Basilica. Later, when the sun sets, enjoy a quintessential gondola ride.

All Passport details should be confirmed at the time of booking. Sales of this program close 90 days prior: book early to avoid disappointment, as space is limited.

St. Mark’s Basilica: Skip the lines to discover the gilded interior of this landmark cathedral, considered among the best examples of Byzantine architecture in the world.

St. Mark’s Square: Discover the heart and soul of Venice in this busy square known by the locals as simply El Piazza.

Bridge of Sighs: This entirely enclosed bridge, hewn from white limestone, once led prisoners across the river and into the prison. Thus, the name.

Doge’s Palace: Enter this ornate Gothic palace, once the residence of the Doge of Venice, now a breathtaking museum adorned with priceless art.
