"A Must-Do Tour... This guided tour was AMAZING!! This was recommended to me by a friend who took the tour last summer. We were a small group. Our guide Marita was excellent!! She was so knowledgeable on Doge's Palace and St Mark's Basilica, never reading from notes. She encouraged questions and loved to share her knowledge. After the tour officially ended, she explained to my wife and cousins about the Torre dell'Orologio (clock tower) in the piazza. So fascinating."
