Days 2-4 : Venice
Pre-book the Walking Tour of Venice excursion and get a feel for the city's main attractions; taking in the delights of the Golden Basilica, Clock Tower and the Doge's Palace. From St. Mark's Square, you will be expertly guided through the back-streets to churches of Santa Maria Formosa and San Giovanni e Paolo, passing by Marco Polo's house to the bustling Mercerie, Venice's main shopping street. The tour culminates in a final visit to St Mark’s Square, where it is popular to enjoy a latte in one of the many pavement cafes lining the piazza’s edge.

Alternatively, spend the afternoon exploring the wider delights of Venice on the pre-bookable Islands Tour. Watch traditional glass blowing in Murano, wander past the brightly coloured fisherman's houses of Burano and take in the silent atmosphere of the barren Torcello Island – one of Venice’s most atmospheric sights.
