Next, you’ll continue on to St. Mark's Square where you’ll view the Basilica, the ornate Doge's Palace and Bridge of Sighs, so named because of the sound prisoners made as they took one last look at their beloved city from the bridge before meeting their fate. The rest of the afternoon is yours to explore what was once the haunt of Casanova and Marco Polo, and you’ll want to relish every second experiencing life in this enchanting city.

Answered my pre-trip questions either through mailed into package or online chat service. Michelle was very helpful throughout booking process.
Vacation
Well organized. Tour director Marco was excellent. However, disappointed that some of the activities included in the tour description was not entirely what I thought they would be. Also, Lido hotel was cramped with mold on the bathroom wall and a bed too short for me (6'1"). Finally, "not to be missed" activities (e.g., Venice canal excursion and Murano tour) should be included in the base package even though the tour price may be somewhat higher. Seemed like highlights were only available for an extra, optional cost.
