Description

Venice Day Trips from Siena

Tuscany is one of the culturally and historically richest regions of Italy. Taking day trips from Siena is a nice way of keeping things exciting! This excursion takes you on one of our explorative Venice day trips from Siena. Its a simple way of seeing a bit more of Tuscany without going through the organizational hassle.


The tour leaves Siena in the early morning and travels north in our comfortable GT coach or a minivan. Upon arriving in Venice, you will have the whole morning to wander around streets of Venice on your own. After lunch (not included in the price of the tour), one of our expert guides will meet you to take you on walking tour around the town. Hence, you'll spend the afternoon seeing and learning about major sights in Piazza San Marco including the symbol of romance, the Bridge of Sighs, the impressive Doge's Palace, St Mark's Cathedral and Clock Tower.

Highlights

There are so many places to see in Venice. The city is full of breathtaking sights and fun activities. For instance, you can grab a water taxi, cruise along the grand canal, or haggle for a better price on the famous Rialto market All that in a city that built on water, composed of 118 islands, and linked by over 350 bridges! Its impossible to see and do everything worthy in Venice in a day. Or is it? We believe that a bit of witty organization can help you make the most of your time.


We design our Venice day trips to give you a wholesome experience without jeopardizing the relaxing holiday ambiance. Leaving Siena so early will grant you enough time to explore the Venice on your own as well as enjoy an informative Venice walking tour.


With the leadership of our guide, the tour will visit the most important sights in the Piazza San Marco and learn all about its history! In addition to all that, you will see one of the crafts Venice is famous for: a glassblowing demonstration. If gondola ride is also part of your perfect Venice fantasy, you are free to book the optional ride.

History Sneak Peek

Venice is not oldest city in Italy but is surely is one of the most exquisite ones, by national as well as international standards. Its uniqueness can be traced all the way to its roots.


The marshy lagoon on which Venice stands has been inhabited by fisherman since the Roman ages. However, the things didn't get interesting until the 5th century AD. That is when the distance of the islands from the mainland Italy provided a shelter during Attilas barbaric invasions. The small lagoon became a safe refuge and soon grew into a thriving city. Subsequently, due to city's strategic location in the Mediterranean, Venice became a crucial trading center, thriving from the import of spices and silk from the Orient.


Venice wasn't special just for its architecture but also for electing its Doge of Venice! Saint Mark became the official patron of the city when the Evangelist took his relics from Alexandria and brought them over.


However, during Middle Ages, luck turned its back on Venice. The town fell victim to the plague which depleted its population severely. Also, discoveries of new continents somewhat decreased Venice's strategic importance in terms of sea trade. However, even after Venice lost its political importance, the art flourished. Although never fully restoring its power, the city did well.


This is just a small sneak peek into all that you will learn and see on your tour.
