Venice Grand Canal Boat Tour

You've walked along the streets and bridges of Venice, but you haven't seen Venice like this. When you embark on a boat tour of Venice's canals, you can truly see the city from a new and different perspective, the way the ancient residents of Venice viewed their beloved city. Leave the other tourists behind and enjoy a boating experience down Venice's Grand Canal and along its smaller winding canals for a remarkable journey on the water.

Explore Venice in fashion as you hop aboard a luxurious motor launch that will glide through the city. With a maximum of 9 participants, your small group Venice boat tour will be an intimate, unforgettable experience. The first part of your trip is a Grand Canal tour, which includes a slow cruise down this world-famous waterway. Keep your camera handy for a series of spectacular photo opportunities. Your knowledgeable, English-speaking guide will show you exquisite villas, iconic churches, romantic bridges, and monumental buildings as you glide on the canal. You'll learn about the historical significance of each location as you pass through one of the most romantic cities in the world.

During the second part of your Venice tour, journey through the minor canals, often missed by tourists. Your tour ends at Piazza San Marco, the principal public square of Venice and known as "the Piazza." Napoleon called this "the drawing room of Europe" due to its cultural significance. There you'll see Saint Mark's Basilica, the Clock Tower, and the square's famous pigeons.

As you glide through Venice on your small group boat tour, seeing sites that tourists often miss, you'll gain a new perspective on this renowned city. Get the VIP experience, watching others walk while you ride luxuriously in a motor launch.

Please Note: This tour departs from and returns to the St. Mark's Square area. Depending on your ship's docking location, a Vaporetto, water shuttle, or walk may be required. Transportation between your ship and St. Mark's Square is not included in the tour price.
