Locals say that Venice needs to be seen from the water, and cruising down the Grand Canal on a luxury speed boat is the perfect way to do this. Hear stories that bring the city to life, visit San Giorgio Maggiore Island, and climb the Bell Tower.

Highlights

  • Cruise along Venice’s Grand Canal in a luxury speedboat
  • Marvel at the city’s most famous sights from the water, as they were meant to be seen
  • Visit the island and Basilica of San Giorgio Maggiore and climb to the top of the Bell Tower

Description

Cruise past all of Venice’s most spectacular basilicas and palaces and under its historic bridges on this 2-hour tour package. Take in sights such as St. Mark’s Square, the Doge’s Palace, the Bridge of Sighs, the Cemetery of San Michele, the Rialto Bridge, the Rialto Fish Market, the Accademia Bridge, the Cà d’Oro and Cà Pesaro palaces, the Madonna dell’Orto Church, and the Salute Church. As you pass by these iconic sites your guide will provide commentary about the unique maritime history of this amazing city. Next you’ll head off the traditional route and stop at one of Venice’s rarely-visited gems, the island and Basilica of San Giorgio Maggiore, where you’ll have postcard-picture views of St. Mark’s Square. After visiting the interior of the stunning Basilica you’ll have the option of climbing the Bell Tower (or taking the elevator). From the top of the Tower you can admire the dome of St. Mark’s Basilica and soak up an incredible vista of the city that stretches away from you. This tour is all about seeing Venice the from water level, and in stylish luxury. With a small group of no more than 9 people and headsets to hear your guide no matter where you are on the boat, discovering the wonders of the world’s most unique city has never been easier or more relaxing.
