Venice Highlights in a Day!
Departing from Rome on a fast train to Venice, e will get on a private wooden water taxi upon arrival and be driven through the Grand Canal and over to the island of Murano for a glass presentation of the historical pieces.
Afterward, we visit Piazza San Marco where I will guide you through the very heart of Venice, as your knowledgeable guide I will point out the city’s landmarks, including the Doge’s Palace, St. Mark’s Basilica, the Campanile and the many arcade buildings around the square.
St. Mark’s Basilica – Venice’s basilica is a testament to Byzantium’s influence on Venice. Included features are gold mosaic arches rising above the carved, Romanesque portal and the rooftop is bedecked with five domes, reminiscent of St. Sophia in today’s Istanbul. The basilica’s interior features marble floors and walls that blend in exquisite, carpet-like patterns. Gilded mosaic murals, like icons, adorn the walls.
Then ride the train back to Rome together.
