  • Itinerary

    Spend a day in 'La Serenissima,' the city of bridges and canals, on this action-packed guided day trip to Venice from Milan. After meeting with your host in the center of Milan, hop in a comfortable coach for the 2.5-hour ride. During the journey, learn about the history of Venice or just gaze out the window at the Northern Italian countryside.
    Arrive in Venice and get ready for an informative guided 2-hour walking tour. Amble over bridges and along canals. Stand in front of Renaissance palaces and learn their history. Take in the aromas of delicious Venetian fare wafting out of restaurants. Stroll along Riva degli Schiavoni, one of the city's main promenades, and then pass by the legendary Bridge of Sighs connected to the Doge's Palace. Let your guide regale you with tales of the doges of centuries past, as you perambulate into St. Mark's Square.
    Stop for some photos in the pigeon-filled square. Stand in front of St. Mark's Basilica, noting its intricate facade. And don't forget to gaze up at the bell tower, a symbol of Venice. Then make your way through the narrow streets again, going over the famed Rialto Bridge, continuing along the Grand Canal to admire the grand mansions that flank the canal.
    Visit some lesser-known hidden gems in Venice too! Explore the calli, a maze-like warren of narrow lanes and canals and learn about what life is like here for locals.
    Take a break for lunch (at own expense) and then visit a glass-making workshop near St. Marks Square to witness skilled glassmakers plying their trade. After browsing in the gift shop and considering taking a souvenir back to Milan with you, head out on the narrow streets again, making your way for the optional 30-minute gondola ride (at your own expense) through the canals of the city. If you opt for the gondola, hop on the flat-bottomed boat, sit back and enjoy the only-in-Venice ambience.
    When the time comes, return to your coach and begin the journey back to Milan.

    This tour provides a nice introduction to Venice, but you don't have a lot of time to explore. It's basically a brief walking tour and an optional gondola ride. I really enjoyed it, but would like to return to Venice another time to actually go inside some of the sights the tour guide told us about. If you go on this tour please do the gondola ride, it was awesome!

    I've always dreamed about my visit to Venice and my Tour Guide Made the experience amazing ! Venice is really crowded and chaotic but she gave us all the information that we needed, even during the free time we felt safe because we had the ZaniViaggi emergency number written on each radio. The tour itself is well organised and I appreciate the fact that we had two different guides: one local and one that stayed with us during the day. Wear comfortable shoes because there is a bit of walking.

    I spent an unforgettable day in Venice with Zani. Our tour leader, Sylvia, was superb and extremely helpful. Walking along the lanes and by-lanes of Venice was exciting and fun, as was the Gondola ride and the glass making workshop.
