Full description

Set off on a day trip from Rome to explore Venice, Europe’s most romantic city. Enjoy a relaxing ride on a high-speed train, see the iconic St. Mark's Square, and cross the Bridge of Sighs.

Meet your tour leader at Rome's Termini train station and board a high-speed train to Venice. When you arrive in the city, get your one-way pass for Venice’s waterbus transportation. Follow your guide onto a Vaporetto (waterbus). As you ride, enjoy your first glimpse of this magical water city. Head to St. Mark’s Square, the heart and soul of Venice. From the waterfront, marvel at the magnificence of the western façade of St. Mark's Basilica. Enjoy some free time to go shopping, sip a delicious Italian coffee, or get lost in the maze of insanely romantic alleys.

Next, cross the Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri), which is among the city's most beloved and most Instagrammable locations.

On the way back to the railway station, join your tour leader for a fantastic aperitivo, or Cicchetti, as the locals call it. Sit down for a mix of small savory side dishes, typically served in a bàcari, and wash it down with a Venetian Spritz.

Return to Rome on the high-speed train with your guide.

The Meeting spot, Caffe Trombetta is located outside of Roma Termini on the left side (if you are facing the Terminal). You can purchase food and drinks there to take on the train. Great trip overall, be prepared for a 3 hour plus train ride with food and drink for purchase. Our guide was multi-lingual, explained what we we’re going to do and pointed out important facts as well as historical facts. Be ready to walk from the train station to San Marco. Thankfully, we took a boat ride back to the train station. Great trip, highly recommended.

Venice is absolutely gorgeous place to visit. Our tour tour is amazing , she went and beyond to make sure our trip to Venice from Rome goes smoothly since my husband is handicap. She coordinated thru the train staffs to trsport my husband’s scooter. The crews are waiting for us when we got to the train stationed. When we got to Venice the vaporotte / ferry is the best way to get around Venice if you have mobility disability. I defiantly recommend this tour to everyone. If you have more time spend at least 3-4 days in Venice. Thanks Rossella for your professionalism and taking care of us.

It was a wonderful experience visiting Venice. This full-day tour is a must to do if you are in Rome. Our guide Rossella was very nice and attentive. Unfortunately, the train was delayed for 1 hour, and we had to stay less time in Venice. The operator was kind of disorganized because of this delay. We were a group of around 14 people, and we had to go another train station because we couldn't board the train at Rome Termini station as we expected. So, we had to go to another train station to board the train by taking some small vans that the operator provided. Nevertheless, it was a great tour overall despite the fact we had to rush our activities in Venice. Also, we couldn't take the aperitif neither the snack offered. I only wish I could have stayed longer in Venice.
