Once in Venice, join a very small-group tour of 12 people around the city centre. The guide will explain about the typical features of Venice, such as the navigation, the foods, the mazy canals. The starting point of the tour is just next to Rialto Bridge. You will pass on it and then you will have the chance to take a stunning picture of the Grand Canal from a panoramic rooftop terrace. You will walk in the small "calli" (streets) and "campi" (squares) to arrive, in the end, in Piazza San Marco, where the guide will tell you about the Basilica that makes this square so magnificent. Than you will hop on a Gondola to have a Tour in the canals and you will pass under the Bridge of Sighs. Half-an-hour and you will go back to land. Gather around the entrance of the Doge's Palace with the other partecipants to skip the long line and visit the Basilica. You will go up to a panoramic terrace where you will have a look of the square 'Piazza San Marco' from above. In the Doge's Palace, you will also talk about the most famous works of painters such us Tintoretto and Tiziano. You will pass on the Bridge of Sighs, to take a picture of the canals.
