Explore the Grand Canal in your Venice Boat Tour from Cruise
Embark on a private two-hour cruise ship excursion departing directly from your cruise ship. In the city built on water, travel with one of our expert local guides for an informative and entertaining tour of Venice's Grand Canal, often referred to as the main street of Venice. As you cruise down this historic "Highway," you'll be introduced to the magnificent palaces, churches, gardens, bridges, and warehouses that line its banks. Learn about the illustrious residents of these palaces over the centuries, uncover the stories behind the splendid facades, and discover insights into both historical and contemporary Venetian life.

Discover Hidden Gems in this Venice Shore Trip
After your Grand Canal adventure, delve into some of the lesser-known parts of the city. Navigate the smaller back canals that stitch together the many islands of Venice. Visit landmarks like the Jewish Ghetto in the Cannaregio district and traverse the San Polo district, where some of Venice's oldest buildings stand. This part of the tour allows you to explore the authentic and photogenic areas of Venice, providing a deeper understanding of its rich history and unique urban fabric.

Again - It never happened and they didn't reimburse us. They claimed force majeure. The only vendor who did so. When we come back to Venice we will use another vendor.
