On this truly unique and magical guided tour of Venice's waterways, you will be guaranteed the best and most breathtaking views of Venice possible. More in the heart of Venice you could not hope to be! With our expert guide you will start your tour near the prestigious Hotel Gritti, from where you will be steered in style by your own personal gondolier through the picturesque 'Rio della Madonetta' and on to the incomparable Grand Canal.
Passing through centuries of history and stunning palazzi, each with their own story to tell, you will glide effortlessly along one of the most famous, beautiful and elegant 'high streets' in the world. All you need to do is sit back, relax with a glass of Prosecco or Bellini in your hand, and take in the surroundings while our informative guide entertains you with stories and anecdotes of the city, explaining the history behind La Serenissima and her array of stunning palaces.
The tour will take you under the modest Accademia Bridge, which separates the districts of buzzing San Marco on one side from charming Dorsoduro on the other. Moving on, you will hear about the many characters that Venice has played host to throughout history. You will also discover the secrets of the Venetians, the 'traghetto' for example and the tales behind the gondola itself. Turning into another of Venice's scenic side canals, you will not only be able to enjoy the splendour of the Canal Grande but also the quaint charm of the smaller, more residential areas too - 'real Venice'. Wending your way back out on to the Grand Canal you will pass by the gothic masterpiece, Ca' D'oro, the historic fish market and under the romantic and majestic Rialto bridge. These are just a few highlights of this outstanding exploration of Venice.
Why not indulge in this exceptional tour? See Venice from the way it was intended to be seen and appreciate it from the best and most original angle. An excellent way to combine an informative and stimulating guided commentary with an essential gondola ride, this tour is not to be missed!
