Cruise Port - Ravenna

You will be greeted at the cruise ship port and shown to a modern, comfortable, and air-conditioned vehicle. Your professional driver will then transfer you through the beautiful Italian countryside. The journey takes roughly 2.5 hours.


After your journey you will arrive at the bus parking outside of Venice, where you will be greeted by our professional, experienced certified Venetian guide. Your luggage will be securely stored whilst we take you on a tour of this fairy-like city and its stunning canals. You will be divided into small groups of maximum 15 people to make the most of your Venetian visit!

Piazzale Roma

From the bus parking we will transfer you to Piazzale Rome, where our adventure begins. This is the closest cars are allowed to come and once you walk across the first bridge the charm of this timeless island quickly becomes apparent. From here you will be picked up by a beautiful water taxi, which will transfer you directly to the heart of Venice - the St. Mark's Square. On your way you will pass by some of the most iconic parts of Venice, which your local tour guide will point out to you and explain. Traveling by boat is the best way to experience Venice - skip the crowds and walking and see this beautiful city in a unique and intimate way from the water, the way it was meant to be viewed!

Piazza San Marco

The boat will bring you directly to the San Marco Square - the most famous and only "Square of Venice".

Basilica di San Marco

Your guide will show you the mosaics adorning the ancient Basilica and its clock tower along with the Campinale (Bell Tower).

After the gondola ride you can take your time at the San Marco Square to do some shopping and more sightseeing, or walk with our tour guide over to the Rialto bridge and market. Here you will learn about the lives of traders who after a successful day on shore would re-embark on their merchant vessels docked at the port.

Piazza San Marco

At the end of your tour you will once again board the beautiful water taxi which will take you back to your luggage.

We enjoyed this excursion in Venice. It was wonderful being picked up right at the cruise port in Ravenna by Fabio and driven to meet our guide Octavia. No stress and absolutely comfortable transportation. Octavia was very informative and took very good care of us the entire day. As we only had one night in Venice it was nice to see the sites and learn a lot of history. We also enjoyed a gondola riide and learned a little more history of Venice before going to get our luggage that was stored in the van. Super convenient and easy. Before saying goodbye to our wonderful guide she gave us perfect walking directions to the Radisson hotel in Venice. Where we had another amazing experience there. Highly recommend paying the extra for this tour and enjoy a stress free way to explore Venice in a day. Thank you Octavia and Thank you Viator.


We had a wonderful experience from being picked up promptly from the port to being taken directly to a water taxi, to a fabulous tour by Sebastian in Venice. He helped us each step of the way and delivered us right to our hotel. The communication from the company was great. We traveled with kids and Sebastian kept them interested the whole time. Fabulous Tour!


Wonderful tour of Venice with local guide from Vexperio. Our cruise ended in Ravenna, Italy and we wanted to see Venice before heading back to US. We were picked up at the port and driven to Venice comfortably. Professional and reliable services all around.


Monica was amazing! Beautiful tour, and she was so helpful. 100% recommend! Organized, thoughtful and friendly. It was our first time in venice and were taken care of. Recommend!


Absolutely fantastic day! From pick up at cruise port, through guided tour of Venice including personal gondola ride, everything went smoothly and was very enjoyable! We saw all the highlights!! Everything was well planned and kept timely for our transfer to airport. Highly recommended.


Fantastic. Highly recommend. Seamless transportation from cruise docking in Ravenna to Venice. My luggage was well taken care of so we didn’t have to drag it around. As it was our first time in Venice, our friendly, knowledgeable guide Magda was outstanding. Itinerary was great with stops at all of the important landmarks as well as a wonderful half hour gondola ride which was thoroughly enjoyable. My words don’t do this experience justice so I’d encourage you to do this tour yourself. My only disappointment was the fact that we were only in Venice for the day. Beautiful here.


The transfer from Civitavecchia (cruise port) was seamless. The drivers handled our bags for the entire day. It made it easier to enjoy our tour of Venice. If you are lucky enough to have Sebastian as your tour guide, you are in great hands. As a local Venetian he is knowledgeable about the history and culture of Venice. Sebastian has a typical pride of any local Italian where he wants you to fall in love with his home town. He will tell you where NOT to eat, show you all the best that Venice has to offer, and provide you with the back story of this charming city built on 100+ islands.


Our tour was terrific. Very knowledgeable and helped with our luggage and arranged for a water water taxi to our hotel.


Great tour. Octavia was a wonderful tour guide and I would recommend to anyone thinking about going to Venice.


This tour was the perfect end to our honeymoon! Seamless pickup at Ravenna port in a private vehicle and ride to Venice where we met our incredible guide for the day, Sebastian. We can not stop raving about him! We not only did & saw all the highlights of Venice, but also had such a valuable insiders look at things from a born & raised Venetian. Would HIGHLY recommend!
