Itinerary

Day 1: Depart From Rome

Stop At: Canal Grande, 30100 Venice Italy
The Grand Canal is the most important "street" in Venice that can be followed by ferry or gondola.

The Grand Canal divides the city centre into two parts, it is older than Venice for this reason the city was built following the path of the river.
One end of the canal leads into the lagoon near the Santa Lucia railway station and the other end leads into the basin at San Marco. It makes a large reverse-S shape through the central districts (sestieri) of Venice. It is 3.8 km (2.4 mi) long, and 30 to 90 m (98 to 295 ft) wide, with an average depth of 5 metres (16 feet).
Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Piazza San Marco, 31024 Venice Italy
Piazza San Marco often known in English as St Mark's Square, is the principal public square of Venice where it is generally known just as la Piazza ("the Square"). All other urban spaces in the city (except the Piazzetta and the Piazzale Roma) are called campi ("fields"). The Piazzetta ("little Piazza/Square") is an extension of the Piazza towards the lagoon in its south east corner. The two spaces together form the social, religious and political centre of Venice and are commonly considered together.

Here you can admire the most famous monuments of Venice, such as the 700-year-old basilica of San Marco and its museum , the San Marco Campanile, the Clock Tower of the first Renaissance building, the Ducal Palace in Venetian Gothic style and the Bridge of Sighs, where you can take romantic and unforgettable photos.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Ponte di Rialto, Ruga degli Orefici (Rialto) San Polo, 30125 Venice Italy
After lunch, you will head for the magnificent Rialto bridge, where you can admire the splendid view of the Grand Canal and stroll through the ancient Rialto market. Afterwards you will visit the historical Panoramic Terrace of Fontego dei Tedeschi, now the residence of some of the most famous brand shops, where you can enjoy the best view of Venice.
In Venice we can count around 354 bridges. All these bridges were built to transportation issues but they add something special to the beauty of th city.
The Rialto Bridge is the oldest of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice. Connecting the sestieri (districts) of San Marco and San Polo, it has been rebuilt several times since at first it was built with two old ships and than in a wooden structure. The last reconstruction, dated 1591, is the one we can see today.

Duration: 2 hours

Day 2: Tour and back in Rome

Stop At: Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, Campo de la Salute Dorsoduro 1, 30123 Venice Italy
In the morning you will visit Santa Maria della Salute. It is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica located at Punta della Dogana in the Dorsoduro sestiere of the city of Venice. A religious complex was destroyed to build this church in honor of the Virgin Mary who had saved the city from the plague. It was completed in the second half of the VII century.

It stands on the narrow finger of Punta della Dogana, between the Grand Canal and the Giudecca Canal, at the Bacino di San Marco, making the church visible when entering the Piazza San Marco from the water.
Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Ponte dell'Accademia, Campo de la Carita, Venice Italy
The Ponte dell'Accademia is one of only four bridges to span the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. It crosses near the southern end of the canal, and is named for the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia, which from 1807 to 2004 was housed in the Scuola della Carità together with the Gallerie dell'Accademia, which is still there. The bridge links the sestieri of Dorsoduro and San Marco.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Scala Contarini del Bovolo, San Marco, 4303, 30124 Venice Italy
The Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo (also called the Palazzo Contarini Minelli dal Bovolo) is a small palazzo in Venice, Italy, best known for its external multi-arch spiral staircase known as the Scala Contarini del Bovolo (literally, "of the snail"). It underwent many transformations due to its several different owners.

The building is equidistant from Rialto – the economic centre of Venice –, and from Saint Mark, the political heart of the Republic.

This trip was amazing. We really lucked out with our tour guide Gianmarco! It was his first professional tour, but he nailed it! In our 30 hours spent in Venice, I don't think we missed a single sight. That took a lot of moving around, so don't expect to see everything if you want to take it all in at a leisurely pace or peruse some of the wonderful museums, but this tour gave us just enough time to see pretty much the entire island of Venice. Breakfast at the hotel was just some packaged breads and crackers, so don't plan on that free meal but the accommodations were nice-the only place we stayed in Italy that had a working AC unit in the room!. This tour was excellent!
