Experience the romance of one of the most enchanting cities in the world, Venice. Virtually unchanged after centuries, the sanctuary on the lagoon is a wonderful place to explore. See this marvelous city on a day trip excursion from Rome via hi-speed rail. Meet with the tour operator staff at the meeting point early in the morning to receive your train tickets and fast-track entry passes for St. Mark’s Basilica. Zip along on a hi-speed train and arrive in Venice in just 3 hours and 45 minutes. Once you arrive, spend some time wandering through the city’s alleyways. Walk across the many bridges that pass over the canals and make your way over to St. Mark’s Square. Feel free to shop and have lunch in this area and just take in the atmosphere. When ready, head over to St. Mark’s Basilica and skip the lines for entry using your fast-track entry ticket! Climb to the top of the Basilica for a great view of Venice and the Veneto. Later, catch a ride on a Vaporetto water bus and cruise down the Gran Canal. Marvel at the beautiful buildings rising from the lagoon along the canal. Consider a classic romantic gondola ride along the canals with a loved one, or just keep exploring! It may be hard to tear yourself away from this timeless masterpiece of a city, but don’t miss your train back to Rome!
