Venice Tours

Imagine the audacity of building a city of marble palaces on a lagoon and that was only the start. Never was a thoroughfare so aptly named as the Grand Canal, reflecting the glories of centuries of Venetian architecture in the 50 palazzi and six churches lining its banks. At the end of Venice’s signature S-shaped waterway, the Palazzo Ducale and Basilica di San Marco add double exclamation points. But wait until you see what’s hiding in the narrow backstreets: neighbourhood churches lined with Veroneses and priceless marbles, convents graced with ethereal Bellinis, Tiepolo’s glimpses of heaven on homeless-shelter ceilings, and a single Titian painting that mysteriously lights up an entire basilica.

Venice Gondola Ride
1 Italy’s famous Floating City Venice sits on a network of 26 beautifully situated canals. There are no cars allowed on the winding, Renaissance-era streets, so exploring the city by the water is the best and unique way to tour and explore the city.

Travel Tips for Venice

3 full days in Venice is the perfect amount of time to explore the city. You'll need 2 days to see the major attractions including Doge's Palace, Saint Mark's Basilica and Bridge of Sighs. Also, you'll have to dedicate one full day to Murano and Burano – most interesting islands in the Venetian lagoon.

Standard gondola rides in Venice have a fixed cost of 80 euros for a private 25-30 minutes tour. At night, however, the cost of a gondola ride is 120 euros for a private 25-30 minutes tour. If you desire to stay longer, tell the gondolier and ask for the price before the start of the tour.

Venice is more expensive than some places but that is to be expected as getting things in and around has extra logistical challenges. We've been going for over 20 years and only paid near those prices for special drinks in St Mark's Square which we expected.

Contrary to what other tourists say, Venice doesn't smell at all. If anything, you'll smell salt water in the canals. Some say though that during summer when water levels are lower in smaller canals they can smell a bit. Other than that, Venice stays odor-free.

So, can you swim in the Venice canals? The simple answer is: no, you are not allowed to swim in the Venice canals, nor in any other place in the historic center of Venice.
