Palaces and bridges of Venice

Hop into a motorboat and cruise down the Grand Canal of Venice. See dozens of palazzos, mansions, churches, and iconic bridges that span the waterways. Marvel at the ancient Rialto, the oldest and most famous bridge, and then admire the modern Della Constituzione, a glass bridge constructed near Calatrava.

Pass central Venetian patrician houses, home to art collections, museums, and university seats. See major city and state institutions like Ca' Grande and Ca' Balbi, and the luxurious hotel Gritti.

Catch a glimpse of the bustling casino at Ca' Vendramin Caliergi, and the soirees' palace Ca' Pisani Moretta, before passing through international communities like Fondaco dei Tedeschi. You will also get to see the grand religious edifice of La Madonna Della Salute.

Very worthwhile. Had a very good English speaking guide on a 1 hour canal tour of Venice with a group of 8 people. Highly recommended!

The canal tour was great and was a quick way to see the city by boat. Overall, I enjoyed the tour for the views that it provided. However, the logistics of the tour were a nightmare. After purchasing tickets, I was informed that I should go to a meeting spot and that I would be picked up there. The site also stated that a mobile voucher would be okay to use. That was not the case at all. You actually have to go to the ticketing office and show your mobile voucher there. The person working there will then give you a physical voucher and will tell you which boat to board. That was 100% not clear, but the company and workers remained adamant that it was. Because of the confusion, my family and I missed our tour, but luckily we were able to join the next one thanks to a helpful member of the company. So as long as you follow my instructions (and not the instructions on the website / confirmation e-mail) you'll be fine.

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise through the canal with our guide (I wish I could remember her name)! It was a small group. We were able to come out in the front once we entered the Grand Canal. It was a very personable tour.
