Full description

Spend the day in one of the world’s most romantic cities on a full-day guided tour to Venice from Lake Garda. Travel across the Veneto on an air-conditioned bus, and hop on a private boat to the heart of the city. Finally, join a walking tour from St. Mark's Square to Rialto Bridge.

Following your pick-up from various points in the Lake Garda region, including Limone, Riva del Garda and Bardolino, transfer to Venice with a short coffee break (at your expense) near Soave. Arrive in Venice by 11:00 AM and hop on a private boat and cross the lagoon to St. Mark's.

Take a 40-minute walking tour of St. Mark's Square, complete with a guide and headphones, and see some of the city’s most famous landmarks, such as St. Mark's Basilica, the Bridge of Sighs, and the Campanile. Stroll the main streets to the Rialto Bridge and other monuments of “La Serenissima.” Learn more about the Republic of Venice and how it came to dominate the east and the west as the “Queen of the Adriatic.” The central district is teeming with beautiful squares, canals, crumbling mansions, ancient churches, artist workshops, and bridges — all of which you get to admire on this tour. In the afternoon, get some free time to relax and explore Venice on your own. Go off the beaten path for a more authentic look at everyday life in the city, or just sit back and people-watch in one of the many cafés of Piazza San Marco.

At the end of the day trip, jump back on the boat to get from St. Mark's Square to the transfer bus at approximately 5:45 PM.

Punctually at 7:00 a.m. we were picked up in Limone sul Garda by a nice bus driver and a competent tour guide, who already had a lot of information about the city for us during the bus ride to Venice. After a short toilet stop on the highway we continued. Around 10:30 a.m. we reached the parking lot in Venice, from where we continued with the steamer into the city. During this trip, too, we learned a lot about the buildings we passed. There was a city tour with the most important sights, after which we had enough free time to explore the city on our own, eat something etc. You could also book a gondola tour and a water tour. All in all it was an exhausting (also due to the heat) but nice experience. At 20:30 we were back in Limone. Many thanks again to the tour guide for the nice and competent company and the very safe bus driver.

The bus came on time, and the boat trips to and from Venice went smoothly. The two additional boat trips at night of the tour can be done, but you don't have to. If you prefer to use the free time before you go home differently, you are welcome to do so. All in all it was a nice trip.

Everything was very well organized from start to finish, can't fault it. We would do that again. Especially good: the evening before we get a WhatsApp question where we would like to get on the bus. That worked wonderfully. During the trip from Lake Garda to Venice there was very detailed and helpful information in German and English about the day and about Venice. It was all very well done. You could reserve and pay for a gondola ride on the bus.
