See Campo Santa Margherita and the Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, where the 16th-century Italian painter Titian is buried.

We went to Venice for 2 nights/ 1 full day. I think this was a good amount of time, as we spent our full day out and about from the morning till night. This tour was a nice part of the day as it provided unique facts that we now know about Venice. Venice was a highlight of our trip and the tour guide was clear and engaging, too. It was a good amount of time. Would recommend!

On time, good english and you'll get a good picture at the Rialto Bridge. I recommend you do the tour as the very first thing before visiting the Doge and Basilica. The tour gives you a good introduction. You will then start noticing what the guide said as you explore the rest of Venice
