The tour gets underway as you are delivered to your captain for the evening and board the classical Venetian style motorboat.
Witness The Glorious Sights of Venice From The Deck of Your Boat
Venice of course was designed to be navigated by boat, so you will have the opportunity to hear all about the fascinating history of the city, and the famous characters like Napoleon, Casanova, and Marco Polo who had a profound impact on the city, as you glide by mesmerizing sights and locations that make Venice so unique and distinctive. Wonders such as St. Mark’s Basilica, the Salute Church, Accademia bridge, the Ca’ d’Oro & the ancient Turkish Tradehouse… all ready to be photographed in glorious sunset lighting to create everlasting memories!

Classic Venetian Eating & Drinking Experience
Towards the end of the experience, your captain will dock in the Cannaregio district and deliver you to a Venetian ‘’Bacaro’’ or bar for a delicious aperitivo. You can choose your drink (wine, beer, etc), but the traditional tipple would be the “Venetian Spritz” made with Aperol and Prosecco. To eat you will be able to try several ‘’Cicchetti’’ which are little plates of fresh traditional Venetian appetizers.
It will be a truly Venetian way to finish our time together, before strolling back to Rialto bridge!
