Venice from Rome by high-speed train with St. Mark’s Basilica

Rome -

Depart on a day-trip to Venice from Rome by high-speed train. Discover St. Mark's Basilica, the Bridge of Sighs and Rialto Bridge in one day. If you are based in Rome for your holiday but don’t want to miss out on the true taste of Venice, this is the ideal tour for you! By using the high-speed train, you'll travel comfortably and swiftly to maximize your time in this iconic city on the water.Upon arrival at the Venice train station, your City Wonders representative will escort you to a vaporetto for a pleasant trip down the Grand Canal to St. Mark’s Square. Head straight into St. Mark’s Basilica with your local expert guide, where you’ll uncover the diverse treasures inside, including the dazzling golden mosaics adorning its domed interior and ceilings. Climb up to the famous terraces. Rarely included on guided tours, they offer beautiful views over St. Mark’s Square and the Venetian rooftops beyond.You’ll then start your discovery of Venice with a guided tour on foot. You’ll stroll across the church and palace-lined piazzas of Campo SS Giovanni e Paolo and Campo Santa Maria Formosa, where Byzantine, Renaissance and modern elements fuse together their timeless portraits of the city, and also glimpse the fabled Bridge of Sighs, said to be named after the sighing prisoners as they were escorted across the canal to the cells of the adjacent prison. You’ll walk by Marco Polo’s house and hear about how the Venetian merchant set off to sea one day. You'll then have about 3 hours to enjoy Venice independently. Your guide will offer local advice on the best restaurants you can try for lunch, or you may want to sample the famous cicchetti: similar to tapas these are best enjoyed with a glass of Prosecco.After your free time, you’ll take to the water for another highlight: a panoramic cruise for our transfer from Rialto back to the train station, on board of a private water taxi.
