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!

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.

Took this tour as a spur of the moment activity while in Venice. So glad we did. Got to see Venice from the water and learn a bit of history along the way.
