The Grand Canal is the most spectacular “highway” in the world. It runs through the most beautiful palaces that were constructed over hundreds of years. This tour helps you to imagine what the Grand Canal was like when there were still gardens, ‘squeri’ (where the gondolas were built), warehouses, and stone-masons. The expert guide will entertain you with stories of the most historical palaces (many having famous owners). This 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 minutes 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. This boat tour is enjoyable for all ages and gives your feet a well-earned rest!
