1. Ravenna Port: Transfer to Venice with Tour and Gondola Ride
Enjoy a stress-free transfer with your luggage from Ravenna port on a day trip to Venice. Store your luggage and go on a guided walking tour to admire sights like Doge’s Palace, Rialto Bridge, St Mark's Basilica, and Frari Chapel. Have the option to add a gondola ride to round off your experience. Be greeted by your host and hop aboard an air-conditioned bus with plenty of room for luggage storage. Sit back and relax as you take in views of the Italian countryside on the ride to Venice. Upon arrival, meet your guide and leave your luggage securely locked away on the bus. Transfer from the bus parking area to Piazzale Roma to begin your walking tour. Stroll across the first bridge and make your way to the San Rocco school and church. Go around the corner to see the Frari Chapel, a popular wedding location. Next, stop at Campo San Polo, where Venetians used to organize bullfights for carnival. Head to the lively Rialto market where locals go for fresh fish and produce. Have the opportunity to buy a snack or drink, browse the local delicacies, and go souvenir shopping (at your own expense). Cross the Rialto Bridge and soak in the views of the canal. Learn about the lives of traders and merchants. See the central square of Venice, St Marks Piazza. Watch as your guide points out the mosaics adorning the ancient Basilica and its clock tower along with the Campanile (belltower). Admire views of Doge’s Palace, which for over 1000 years, served as the government administrative center of the region. Afterward, transfer to the luggage storage, or if you select the optional gondola experience, begin your ride through the city's canals before collecting your luggage.
