Floating around Venice, Italy

Day Trips

Touring the waterways

 

Venice is a must-visit destination for any travel lover.

The city is rich with history, culture, architecture, and crowds.  The crowds pack the pathways, as Venice is the world’s only pedestrian city.

The best way to escape the chaos is on water.

Whisk yourselves away through the canals and narrow waterways.  Gondolas, water taxis, and private speedboats allow you to explore the 118 islands connected by over 400 bridges.

Panoramic views take you back hundreds of years.  The major landmarks and understated buildings all radiate the character and romantic charm of Venice.
