We really enjoyed this tour. You are able to get much more history and cover more area than in the Gondola. We saw different neighborhoods and learned about the history of Venice. It was fascinating. Also, I really liked how the boat is small so...More

Gianluca was a great guide and super helpful from the moment we booked our tour. The weather forecast ended up not being great for our scheduled tour date, so he worked with us to push the tour back a day. We were so thankful for...More
I cant recommend this tour more! Venice is an extremely busy place, & it can feel like its impossible to find anywhere quiet or off the beaten track to explore.
However all that changed when we took this trip. We saw the lovely quiet back...More
The experience we had with Gianluca on his boat was very different and much more original than seeing Venezia in a normal way. I fully recommend to everybody to see Venezia with Gianluca. For me was the best of my stay in Venezia. Thank you...More

Roselle, I only read your comment now.
Thank you for making me participate in this moment, even if painful, of your family. My deepest condolences to you and to your whole family.
A wonderful way of exploring the real Venice, where real Venetians actually live. Also to learn about the history of Venice and the lifestyle of its people from a local.
Giancarlo and Lorenza were excellent hosts and good company. We covered a surprising amount of...More
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighbourhood identity.
