Take this tour sailing by motorboat along the grand canal admiring the magnificent palaces, whose wide-ranging architectural styles embrace the Byzantine, Florid Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. On your tour, you will be able to imagine what the Grand Canal was like when there were still gardens, warehouses, and stone-masons. Your guide will entertain you with stories of the most historical palaces and teach you how to recognize each palace, who lived where, and to discover why poets and writers such as Shelley, Byron, and Browning loved this city.
This one hour 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. Venice was built to be appreciated from the water, the facades of the city can only be seen from the canals. This boat tour is enjoyable for all ages and gives your feet a well-earned rest!
