Visit the Grand Canal in Venice with this unique boat tour

There are many tours and activities in Venice, but one to explore the Grand Canal is truly worth anything. Few tourists think of admiring Venice from the canals, as much of the city is hidden and can only be viewed from a boat or a gondola.
The today elegant and lavish Grand Canal in Venice was not always like this, as once there were only stilt gardens, with workshops and warehouses. But along the centuries, more and more of the nobles began to built and commission exquisite palaces and mansions, making the Grand Canal an exceptional site.

Fun Boat Trip, Great way to see Venice's Neighboring Islands

My mom and I had a great time on the boat trip. It was a very relaxing ride between the islands. We stopped at the glass factory in Murano which was amazing to watch. On Burano we skipped the lace factory tour and instead wandered around checking out the different colored fisherman's houses and cute shops. Torcello was neat to see the oldest civilization in the estuary. We grabbed a Coke Light and Bag of Bruschetti all'olio di oliva al gusto pomodoro e basilico and propped our feet up on the side rail for the ride home...enjoying our snack with a beautiful sunset over Venice. Highly recommended. Just long enough to get a good flavor of the area, without being excessively long. The guide did a great job, narrating in 6 different languages.

Canal Boat Ride

It was September and the weather was hot but the taxi ride up and down the Grand Canal was fantastic. There was no odor from the water and the scenery was awesome. If you are in Venice you must take this ride which lasted about 40 minutes giving an indepth view of the city and its buildings.

Venice Tour

Our tour was wonderful....we started out in the morning taking a gondola ride and then toured St .Marks and Doges Palace and then finished our day with a boat ride on the grand canal, so we had the best of everything in our minds. The weather was beautiful so what a better way to start a day than with sunshine on a gondola and finishing with the sun going down on the boat. Absolutely worth every penny. We loved that we had time between tours to do our own thing, shop a bit, eat lunch on canal etc...wonderful tour, would recommend to anyone....
