Tick off two items on your Venice bucket list with a gondola ride and a tour of Saint Mark's Basilica. Admire the wonders of the basilica on a 1.5-hour skip-the-line guided tour, then see Venice from the water on a 30-minute gondola ride. Start your day by skipping the long lines to look inside Saint Mark's Basilica and marvel at the rich decor of this masterpiece of Byzantine art. Learn about its gold mosaics and marble inlays with the help of a licensed guide. Then, experience the beauty of Venice aboard its most traditional mode of transport on a gondola ride along the Grand Canal. Venture down some of the minor canals of the city center to admire the old palaces and historic bridges from the water.
