Visiting St. Mark’s Square is a must when traveling to Venice with your family and we know just how to do it so that everyone will have a great time.
Avoid long lines and boring cultural visits, and let your private certified guide show you how fascinating and beautiful this square really is.
After a brief introduction and a look at the outside of the Doge’s Palace, enter what was once the heart of Venetian politics. From the Palace’s courtyard to the Chamber of the Great Council, Europe’s largest room, by way of the creepy prison cells, our guide will tell you all about the history and secrets of this iconic palace, while keeping the young ones fully engaged.
A visit to Saint Mark’s Basilica is also part of the program. After looking at its spectacular facade and golden mosaics, skip the line and enter this holy place, which still hold the remains of St. Mark the Evangelist. Get a chance to go behind the altar and gaze at the precious altarpiece, “Il Pala d’Oro”.
Finally, discover the secrets of the Bell Tower, the Campanile and the buildings around the iconic square from the outside (visits inside these areas are not included in this tour).
A game booklet is handed out to each child to make sure that they learn about St. Mark's Square as much as they have fun!
