Grand Canal Boat Tour

About this activity
In our opinion, Venice's Grand Canal is the most beautiful Main Street in the world. The spectacular palaces, stunning skyline, gliding gondolas... it's like a real-life storybook. This hour-long tour puts you in the center of this picturesque action, as you cruise the Grand Canal - and some of the smaller waterways - with an English-speaking guide filling your ears with stories about this beautifully unique city.
The peak of Venice's power, when it was a mighty republic ruled by the Doge, is now well in the past. But the Venetian Republic's two most iconic legacies remain: stunning architecture and heavily used canals.
The styles of the buildings lining the Grand Canal show off the luxury for which the republic was famous for. (Keep an eye out for the oriental façades that testify to the riches acquired via trade with the Far East). And the canals are no mere charming quirk for the benefit of the tourist trade; Venice is still a city without cars - everything in the city moves by water or handcart.
This tour shows you the best of the city they call the Bride of the Sea , and your tour guide will answer many questions that will crop up during your float. You'll find out what the Grand Canal was like before the palazzos were built, learn about (and see!) the famous gondolas, and get to know the Venice of today.
You'll be fascinated by the stories of the main sights, but equally intrigued by the more secluded waterways - with the many picturesque small bridges and 'off the beaten track' sights, to introduce you to a quieter Venice.
Venice is a city meant to be appreciated from the water. And this boat tour offers the whole family an opportunity to get to know the Venice of then and now, and all while giving your feet a break!
