tickitaly.com - sightseeing, not queueing.

An hour-long tour, led by a professional tour guide, that will reveal both St Mark's Square and its fabulous basilica in such a way as to leave you with a far deeper insight into the history of these fabulous highlights of Venice than a casual visit will bring.

At a glance details:

  •   Skip any queues for the basilica (not applicable November to March).
  •   You may use a copy of your voucher on a mobile device to gain admittance.
  •   Tours last one hour.
  •   Tours are not wheelchair accesible, nor suitable for those of considerably reduced mobility.
  •   As you'll be visiting a working place of worship you'll need to be dressed respectfully - no bare shoulders or knees.
  •   Please give yourself plenty of time to get there as the tour will not accommodate late arrivals.
  •   Tours will take place rain or shine, though very high-water may cause cancellation.
  •   You'll be listening in to your english speaking guide for a full audio headset commentary.
