Venice 1 hour on private boat

I will take you on a 1 hour photographic tour, a unique experience on our wooden family-boat, sanpierota, cruising through the canals of Venice, minor canals and the GrandCanal.
This tour is particularly adapted for adventurous travelers, who want original experiences in Venice.
We get on board and cruise slowly pass the aristocratic Palazzi through GrandCanal, the minor canals, slide between the gondolas, through the incredible residential 'rios' and under the smallest bridges, only possible with small boats, and discover people's traditional life-style in this particular city built on water.


Depending from where we start, we'll navigate through GrandCanal, the minor canals, narrow rios and pass in front of the aristocratic houses Palazzi Nobili, shooting photos of them and in front of them.

End location: I can end the tour where I met you if you wish, or we can drop You off at a nice restaurant on canal side.

A Recent Review of this tour

Now this is the way to see Venice. Eva and husband Junior picked us up in their motorized wooden rowboat for a most memorable tour through the canals in the early evening. Eva regaled us with Venetian lore and alerted us to upcoming photo ops under the many bridges as the setting sun lit up buildings. Junior handled the logistics of blind corners with his whistle warnings. Perfect way for a couple to travel like a local. Forget the gondola ride. Do this!
