Private Grand Canal Boat Tour

Venice was built to be appreciated from the water, and this will be evident to you the moment you step onto your boat and sip on the famous Bellini cocktail while admiring the city's facades. With the help of your guide you will understand why there is such a diversity of architectural styles here.

Pass by Moorish and Eastern-style palaces while you are entertained with stories about the historical places, many with famous owners. Your guide will also help you to imagine what the Grand Canal was like when there were still gardens, warehouses, stonemasons and "squeri" (places where gondolas are built). Throughout your ride you will also tuck into secluded waterways to experience the quieter side of Venice, complete with picturesque small bridges and off-the-beaten-track sights. You will quickly discover why poets and writers such as Shelley, Byron, and Browning loved this city.

Spend your time in Venice on the most spectacular "high street" in the world and gain a great overview of the city when you book this private tour of the Grand Canal.

Please Note: Each water taxi accommodates groups of up to 5 or 10 people.
