After your visit to St. Mark's Basilica, we'll take you on a magical journey through the enchanting backstreets hugging Venice's most romantic canals. Our next stop? The famous Rialto Bridge!

This time, we'll skip the line and take you behind the scenes to explore the most impressive parts of a mind-blowing Venetian Gothic palace. Visiting both its charming and darker side with sites from the Golden Staircase, and paintings of Titian, to its feared torture chambers and the Bridge of Sighs all of course alongside your expert guide.
