Visit Venice

Visit Venice

ADDRESS / LOCATION

Venice

A one-day tour of Venice is the perfect way to complete your vacation in Istria. Set off on a pleasant sail on a boat and enjoy sightseeing one of the most beautiful cities of the world.

Venice has reason for being sung as one of the most romantic cities in numerous songs. The first settlement in the area of Venice was raised in the 5th century, and with a constant expansion over 118 small islands of the lagoon, the city after a few centuries became an organized republic that spread its maritime power all across the Mediterranean. The remains of the famous history are visible everywhere even today. The city as a whole can be considered an architectural monument, where even some of the smaller buildings contain rich decorative works of art from artists such as Giorgione, Titian, Tintoretto and others. Regarding monuments, the basilica St. Marko, Doge's Palace and the Rialto Bridge should be singled out, and the stay in Venice would not be complete without sailing the channels with the famous gondola.

Start a whole-day tour of Venice and explore the history and culture of a city that marked European history and take home some souvenirs and memories that will never fade.
