Venice highlights with boat ride from the cruise terminal


Enjoy your private visit of Venice's highlights with boat ride from your cruise terminal.

The tour starts with a private boat ride from the cruise terminal to the city centre. Your first approach to Venice is from the water, the best and real way to get acquainted with this unique city. After an extensive walk throughout the neighbourhood of Castello we stop for a light lunch, at your best convenience.

A deserved rest before we proceed in our walk to reach the area of Rialto, former centre of commerce and lively marketplace of the Venetians today. The tour ends in the square of St. Mark, the very heart of Venice, the can't-miss highlight in town. Your guide gives you an extensive description of the main monuments and leads you into the magnificent church of St. Mark for a breathtaking view on its golden mosaics.

The guide leaves you near the Shuttle Station to go back to the Port.

Itinerary

Enjoy your private visit of Venice's highlights with private boat ride from the cruise terminal.

Your guide picks you up at the main cruise terminal of Venice's Port and brings you in a ride on a private motorboat. This gives you the chance to admire part of the lagoon as well as part of the minor canals in town.

What's best than a boat ride for approaching a city built on the water?

We step down at the Arsenal, former State Shipyard of the Venetian Republic, and we start a walk throughout Castello, the easternmost neighbourhood of the city. The walk features awesome buildings as well as hidden corners.

After lunch we reach the area of Rialto, the former centre for commerce, and we then proceed to St. Mark's square, the heart of Venice, and visit the 900 years old church, a fabulous example of byzantine art and architecture, entirely dressed with golden mosaics and precious marbles.

The guide leaves you near the shuttle station to go back to the Port.
