Alternatively, if you’re interested in booking a tour for a smaller group, take a look at what our sister site offers:

One of the most beautiful cities in the world, Venice has been captivating visitors for centuries with its stunning network of canals and bridges. The waterfront buildings are supported on a series of wooden posts, which are driven deep into the ground to form a solid foundation.

There are literally dozens of wonderful places to visit and the vaporetto (water buses) that buzz up and down the network of canals offer a fun way of getting around. The Piazza San Marco, or St Mark’s Square, was originally the ‘front gate’ to the city and where you will find St Marks Basilica and the Doges Palace, along with numerous cafés where, in the evenings, you can sit and be entertained by the orchestras that compete with each other to attract the attention of passing tourists!

With numerous art galleries, museums and walking tours that cover such subject as art, architecture and photography, as well as canal boat cruises, wandering around quaint hidden alleyways and excellent shops, you are quite literally spoilt for choice.
