A symbol of the city located right in the heart of Venice, St. Mark's Square is the first stop for most visitors in port.

Venice: We took the "St. Mark's at Night and Gondola Serenade" excursion through the ship on the first day. St. Mark's is stunning. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza as part of the NCL post-cruise package, and it was good. Taking the train from Quarto d'Altino into Venice was a piece of cake.

You can book a fast track pass to enter the Basilica by skipping the line by purchasing it online in advance. That's what we did. The lines were outrageous, so it paid off for just a few euro each. Check the official Venice Tourism site to do this. Overall, Venice was beautiful from all the vantage points we had... on water level with the gondola & valporetti; from the streets of Venice, which we walked extensively, getting away from the crowds on the waterfront; from the cruise ship, especially when we departed on Saturday at around 6 pm and all the bells in the city were ringing... what a memory! And finally, from the air when we landed and departed. Arriva Derci, Venice!

Wonderful - excellent guide. However, we missed out the Murano glass tour at the end in order to have an hour browsing the shops and a cup of coffee.

Venice is great to walk. Just had enough time to walk to St. Marks via the Louis Vuitton boutique. We've been before, so it was good to see it again, and the crowds at the basilica and the campanile wouldn't have allowed us enough time to queue anyway.
