A boat tour along the Grand Canal 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.

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. 

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? Learn more about the origins of Venice, this unique city where past and presents coexist like water and stones. And along the way, we’ll also tell you more about the secret part of Venice, since some of the amazing buildings along the Grand Canal often hide curious legends and funny stories.
