Overview

The Grand Canal meanders through Venice and a cruise is an excellent way to see the city’s landmarks: palazzos, courthouses, markets and bridges. The French writer, Philippe de Commines in the 15th century described the Grand Canal as the “finest street in the world”

Cruise down the canal and enjoy the wonderful views of some of the most iconic monuments of Venice such as the Santa Maria della Salute, Ca d’Oro and the Rialto Bridge. Your guide will point out all the buildings of interest on the way and enthral you with fascinating stories from the past.
