Greet your guide at the gondola park by the Hotel Gritti Palace ten minutes before your tour departure time: that's 9:40am Monday to Saturday, but 11am on Sunday. Please dress modestly, covering shoulders and knees, to ensure entrance to St. Mark's Basilica.

Your guide will provide you with a map including locations of your next meeting points and usher you into your gondola, which you'll share with up to five other guests. Climb aboard, relax, and capture pictures as your gondolier poles the craft along the iconic Grand Canal for 30 minutes: admire the arching span of the Ponte dell'Academia and the marble facade of Santa Maria della Salute as you cruise.

Enjoy free time for breakfast, lunch, or just exploring before the next installment of your tour: a 2-hour walking tour. Greet your guide at the Correr Civic Museum across from St. Mark's Basilica on St. Mark's Square ten minutes before the start of the tour at 11:15am (Monday to Saturday) or 2pm (Sunday).

You'll learn about the history of the square and the role of St. Mark in Venetian culture before you enjoy skip-the-line access to St. Mark's Basilica (lower floors only). Admire the rich golden mosaics and decadent altar pieces that adorn this Italo-Byzantine church, which dates back to the eleventh century.

Next, stroll around the corner to the Doge's Palace, home to Venice's rulers for centuries. Skip the line with your guide, don a headset, and tour locations including the prisons where Casanova was enchained and the Bridge of Sighs. Your guide will leave you here, where you're free to continue exploring the palace, or wander at will.

Finally, at 4:15 pm go to the Ali laguna Ticket office close to the Royal gardens, for the last installment of your tour: a 1-hour boat trip with live commentary. Starting from the Grand Canal, discover Venice's watery byways and ancient palazzos as your guide identifies landmarks from bridges and churches to museums, and capture iconic photos.

At 5:30 pm your boat will return to the royal gardens in saint mark's square  where your tour finishes.
