Type of tour:

Boat tour along the Grand Canal and the minor water ways by private water taxi or by public transport

Read here the full Tour Description

If Venice looks like a fish, the Grand Canal is its fishbone! The locals call it « Canalazzo » and it’s shaped like a big S and it’s simply stunning. A boat tour is an absolute must if you’re a first-time visitor to Venice: your mind boggles over how all these amazing old buildings where noble families live and run their business.

There is a public water bus that goes along the Grand Canal, but if you choose to rent a private water taxi, you’ll get more: a motor launch is small enough to navigate also the fascinating minor canals to see parts of the city that are rarely visited by tourists and to take fantastic pictures comfortably sitting outside and listening to your guide’s commentary.

Yes, because where’s the fun in watching beautiful stuff that you don’t know anything about?
