Many of Venice’s most impressive sites can be seen from the water, from the Byzantine glory of ornate churches to the intricate grandeur of Gothic palazzos. Soak in the amazing architecture of the city from aboard a private motorboat, which can cover more distance than a classic gondola ride. Meet your guide in central Venice in the early evening, and then hop aboard a comfortable, spacious water taxi. Cruise up the Grand Canal past the magnificent palaces, churches and homes that line this main thoroughfare while learning about the diverse architecture you see.
Admire grand palaces such as Ca’ Rezzonico, Ca d’Oro and Ca ‘Foscari as you hear tales of the Venetian nobility that once called them home. Pass under the iconic Rialto Bridge that marks the heart of the city’s commercial district. Your cruise returns along the Giudecca Canal to take in sights like the Il Rendentore basilica and the island of San Giorgio Maggiore with its stunning cathedral.
Enjoy the personalized attention of your English-speaking guide and feel free to ask questions about any aspect of Venice that interests you. Choose from three different evening departure times and select a 1-hour or 2-hour tour to fit your schedule. At the end of your tour, you will be taken back to central Venice, where you can continue exploring the city on your own.
