Explore Venice in the most authentic way by sailing in a private boat on the most magnificent waterway on Earth. You will be able to notice the smaller details of the characteristic Gothic palaces up close. This cruise will lead you from the serene atmosphere of Torcello, to the joyful colours of Burano and to Murano, the glass isle, world-famous for its chandeliers.
There is not a more romantic way to admire the enchanting Venice than from its Grand Canal.
You will be immersed in the magic scenery of a fable with the delicate colors of the facades of Gothic Palaces. You will witness the crenellations on their tops, characteristic balconies and arched windows with lacy details and, inside, painted wooden-beamed ceilings and marvelous chandeliers.
You will be brought walking through tiny alleyways with your guide. You will have the chance to breathe in the atmosphere of a fable and experience the feeling of being in the living room of Venice, St. Mark’s Square. Here is where tourists and venetian people meet.
Found in the square is the Doge’s Palace. This was the residence of the Doge, the chief executive of the old “Serenissima” (most serene republic). Its oriental style reflects Byzantine connections. The Bridge of Sights was the place for the last glimpse of freedom for prisoners going to the dungeons.
The Bell Tower which is 324 feet is the exact copy of the tower that collapsed suddenly in 1902. It was the platform for Galileo to test his telescope and is the symbol of Venice, together with Saint Mark Basilica.
Its beauty is unique, despite the total lack of architectural unity, starting from the magnificent mosaics above the doorway. Atop the Clock Tower, two bronze “Moors” strike the hours, with the same mechanism, from the 15th century.
