Venice Viewed From the Water

Enjoy Venice from its best perspective: its canals

Grand Canal

to come to Venice by land from the station is like entering a palace by the back door. No one should approach, save by the high seas, this most improbable of cities. Thomas Mann, ‘Death in Venice’

This is a complete itinerary of the lagoon city for anyone looking to have a truly memorable experience. You can explore the beauty and peace of its dark and narrow canals, and take in the silhouettes of its historic rooftops against the blue skies.

There is no doubt that Venice was outlined to be seen from the water, and from this angle it presents its most magnificent side. Our boat will sail through well-known neighbourhoods, beneath bridges and past squares in order to catch glimpses of secret gardens and other beautiful and interesting corners.

Then, we will glide down the Grand Canal flanked by its centuries-old palaces, and we will capture the beauty of their interiors. A lot of those magnificent buildings are on the waterfront, which is where merchants and locals would unload their valuable products.

Last but not least, you will have a view of the lagoon that has provided food and protected Venice from enemies for centuries, yet at times it can still endanger it by flooding it!
