On a walking tour, pass many of Venice's attractions including the Rialto Bridge, the Basilica di San Marco and the Bridge of Sighs. Board a traghetto to cross the Grand Canal, stride through pigeon flocks in the Piazza San Marco or browse the shops for carnival masks in one of the most iconic cities in Italy.
