Venice Grand Canal Private Boat Tour
The Grand Canal of Venice is the most spectacular 'high street' in the world.
The beautiful palaces were built over hundreds of years and slowly the Grand Canal became what it is today.
Our tour helps you to imagine what the Grand Canal was like when there were still gardens, 'squeri' (places where gondolas are built), warehouses, and stonemasons.
- Why are there so many palaces with differing styles of architecture?
- Why are there those Moorish and eastern style windows?
Our guide will entertain you with stories of the most historical palaces (many having famous owners).
Our narrated tour helps you recognize each palace, who lived where and to discover why the poets & writers such as Shelley, Byron, & Browning loved this city.
This 60 min tour includes a cruise along the city's more secluded waterways to enjoy the picturesque small bridges and 'off the beaten track'' sights, to introduce you to a quieter Venice.
Venice was built to be appreciated from the water; the facades of the city can only be seen from the canals.
Enjoy a glass of the famous Bellini cocktail while taking in these special sights.
This boat tour is enjoyable for all ages and gives your feet a well-earned rest!
