Earth and Water……Walking and Boat Tour
This tour is the perfect combination to live Venice from two perspectives: earth and water!
The tour guide will meet you at the lobby of your hotel and then you will enjoy a stroll to the very heart of Venice, the St. Marks Area of Venice. You will not only experience the atmosphere of Venice and wonders of this unique city but we will start to understand the city, what it offers. On arrival in St. Marks Square you will enjoy the history and the architecture.
After St. Mark’s square, staying away from the crowds, you’ll walk through the backstreets and the squares to explore the city’s layout: you’ll be cocooned by the silence and intimacy that only a car-free city built to human scale can provide. We’ll end our visit in the busy neighborhood of Rialto, once the trade centre of Venice. You’ll cross the famous Bridge, the oldest over the Grand Canal, and explore the bustling surroundings of the best fresh produce market in the city.
The last hour will be on a luxury private boat – the best way to appreciate Venice is from the water perspective. During this unique opportunity you enjoy all the best scenarios Venice presents: the peaceful Lagoon surrounding Venice, small and narrow canals of the quaint Castello district, passing under some of the 400 bridges of Venice, while observing the vibrant reverberation of the buildings reflecting on the water surface.
