What you can expect

Be whisked away from Rome for a day spent boating down canals, wandering past elegant waterfront palazzos, and absorbing the gilded splendour of St. Mark's Basilica. Travel to Venice—the Queen of the Adriatic—to experience the magic of Italy's famous floating city.

Meet in Rome to get your train tickets and get shuttled to Termini, where you board a comfortable and modern high-speed train for the ride north to Venice. When you arrive, the day is yours to spend as you see fit, zipping around like a local on vaporettos and water taxis with your transport pass or getting pleasantly lost in the city's labyrinth of bridges, alleys, and waterside walkways.

Cross the pigeon-filled plaza of St. Mark's Square and save time by skipping the lines to head inside St. Mark's Basilica, Venice's dazzling, golden-domed centrepiece. Admire the opulent interiors, shimmering mosaics, and ornate decorations that adorn every surface inside this spectacular 11th-century Italo-Byzantine masterpiece. Afterwards, while away your final hours people-watching, shopping for delicate Murano glass baubles, or sipping Italian wine and people-watching before catching your evening train back to Rome.
