Your full day Highlights of Venice tour starts from Piazza Romale and avoids the steep paths and all bridges without ramps, making it accessible for wheelchair and scooter users, and for travelers with reduced mobility. The tour starts at Piazza Romale, where you meet your guide.
We can arrange pick up from the cruise port by a tourist assistant, at an additional cost. She will guide you to the so-called people mover (tram line) to the center of Venice, where you meet your officially licensed guide for your private tour. At the end of the trip, your tourist assistant will help you make your way back to the cruise terminal again.
The first stop on your ‘Visit the highlights of Venice tour’ is the Rialto market. At the foot of the famous Ponte di Rialto, this largest market in Venice takes place every morning, except on Sundays. Where fabric traders and goldsmiths used to sell their wares, in current days the owners of the fruit and vegetable stalls enchant you with their colorful peppers, dark aubergines, artichokes, peaches and other goods that change with the seasons.
After you have taken in the beautiful colors and shopped for some souvenirs at the market, you head to the Frari church. The Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari is one of the largest and most impressive churches in Venice. The greatest treasure of the church is the Titian altarpiece, “The Ascension.” The church also houses the grave of Titian, the graves of some doges, and a beautiful triptych of Bellini.
The church has two steps to enter and upon arrival, the staff will assist. Also the side chapel has a two-step entry, and the people working at the site will help you to here here as well.
After the visit to the church, you continue towards the San Marco’s square. The famous square that sometimes floods in the winter. Together with your guide you visit the Doge’s Palace and St. Marks church, which are the most popular attractions in Venice.
