What to Expect

Idyllic canals, tiny streets and flowering balconies everywhere you look, make Venice the most romantic city in the world. Be part of the waterways dream that reflect elegant palaces with Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance façades, small and delicate bridges, magnificent portals of the patrician dwellings, bulb-shaped domes and golden mosaics. On this private guided Venice romantic tour at sunset, you’ll be whisked around the city in a luxury motorboat for one hour, exploring the Grand Canal and smaller canals from Venice’s most beautiful vantage point – the water!


No one can resist the lovers spell that comes from being on a romantic boat ride down the Grand Canal, or through one of the 150 scenic waterways that weave whimsically throughout this marvelous city. Experience the essence of Venice from the water as you cruise through the picturesque scenes of the City of Love away from the crowds. As if in a dream, slip under the bridges of the city, hear some romantic love stories and enjoy spectacular views while sitting on an elegant boat. Whether celebrating your honeymoon in Venice or simply escaping for a romantic getaway, you’ll love contemplating this magical city from the waterways.


The best way to get a sense of Venice is by riding the length of the great waterway that sweeps through its heart in a giant reverse S. With personalized commentary from your guide watch the watercolor sunset reflecting over the Grand Canal and soak up the magnificent passing scenery. Glide down the 2.3-mile long inverted “S” shape of the Grand Canal lined with striking architecture and famous bridges which your guide will point out and explain as you pass by. From the iconic Rialto Bridge to St. Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace with its Bridge of Sighs your guide will entertain you with fascinating stories that will keep you captivated.


This experience is specifically designed for couples who want to enjoy a magical afternoon in Venice. Although many visitors opt to travel the Grand Canal by gondola, this wide and hectic waterway is much better suited to the wood paneled motorboats we use, which allow us to move quickly and easily along the Grand Canal without losing the intimacy of a smaller vessel.
