Boat excursions for the best sceneries of Venice and the best first approach to the city through the Grand Canal, the minor canals and/or through the different islands of the lagoon to discover the hidden treasures of the city.
- Grand Canal and inner canals: The Grand Canal is the main thoroughfare of Venice sweeping through the heart of the city for a stretch of about two and a half miles. Over 40 smaller canals departs form the Grand Canal creating an intricate network of waterways going into every part of the city. The display of palaces bordering these «streets» presents some of the finest architecture of the city and the only way to appreciate it is by boat.
Rate for the tour: 80 € (not including the boat). Tour duration: 1 hour.
- Islands: The lagoon is a small sea, 550 square kilometres, with Venice rising in the centre. Archipelagos of little islands surround Venice as maids-of-honour surround their Queen. In the northern part of the Lagoon, we find some islands whose names are world-famous: Murano, the island of glass, Burano, the island of lace and the colourful houses, and Torcello, the first nucleus of Venice.
Rate for the tour: 70 € per hour not including the boat. Tour duration: from 2 hours.
