The best way to appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of a city built on water is by boat! Gliding through Venice's Grand Canal and minor canals, you'll be introduced to the splendid palaces, churches, bridges, gardens and warehouses lining the city's liquid 'streets'. Your luxurious motor-launch boat tour of the Grand Canal brings the magic of Venice alive, and includes a glass of sparkling prosecco wine.
As you ride, you'll learn about the origins and evolution of the Grand Canal, Venice's most important 'street', and take a fascinating journey through minor canals to see parts of Venice that are seldom visited by tourists. Unlike a ride in a gondola, on the Grand Canal Boat Tour you'll travel through many diverse areas of the city and enjoy a thorough introduction to the city of Venice.
This boat tour is ideal for photographers! The boats are small enough to navigate the minor canals, with enough space for you to comfortably sit outside to take photographs and listen to the detailed commentary provided by your guide. All boats are equipped with microphones and speakers so you can clearly hear the commentary.
An absolute must if you're a first-time visitor to Venice, the Grand Canal Boat Tour will provide you with memories that will last a lifetime.
