Full description
Climb aboard a motor launch and glide down the Grand Canal on a 1-hour tour of Venice. Escape the crowds of the city as you see the sights at a more relaxed pace.

The luxurious motor launch is limited to a maximum of 8-9 passengers for a more intimate experience. Sit outside and enjoy the views and cooling breeze of the waterways. Feel like a VIP as you glide down the Grand Canal. Take photos of the splendid palaces, churches, and romantic bridges at almost every bend on the canal. Learn the evolution of Venice’s main thoroughfare, and hear anecdotes about the famous and infamous people that once lived along it.

Then, meander through the minor canals to discover a more hidden side to Venice. Travel through 4 of the city’s sestieri (districts) to get a full overview of the city and lagoon. Return to St. Marks Square to disembark back in the bustling heart of the city.
