The romantic city of Venice is like none other. Built on an island lagoon, the city began as a refuge from the invading Huns who swept through Italy in the 5th century. Thanks to it's location and picturesque canals, Venice soon became a major trading post between East and West and used its riches to build grand churches and magnificent palaces that still stand toda
This one and a half hour tour will take you to the heart of Venice as we explore the area around San Marco Square and the Rialto Bridge. Here you will find all of Venice's most famous sites, including the Bridge of Sighs and St. Mark's Basilica - so named for the patron Saint of Venice whose body was smuggled out of Egypt in a pork barrel in 828 A.D. and now lies beneath the church.
