What to Expect

Idyllic canals, tiny streets and flowering balconies everywhere you look, make Venice an obvious choice for the world’s most romantic city. But the best way to immerse yourself into this wonderfully unique city is from the water. On this Venice romantic tour at sunset with private boat, you’ll be whisked around the city in a luxury water taxi for one hour, exploring the Grand Canal and smaller canals from Venice’s most beautiful vantage point – the water!


Experience the essence of Venice from the water as you take in its iconic sights 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 a luxury water taxi. Whether celebrating your honeymoon in Venice or simply escaping for a romantic getaway, you’ll love discovering this enchanting city from the waterways.


Wind your way through Venice’s canals and contemplate this magical city from the water. With personalized commentary from your guide watch the watercolor sunset reflecting over the canals 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.


Although many visitors opt to travel the Grand Canal by gondola, this wide and hectic waterway is much better suited to the wood paneled water taxis we use, which allow us to move quickly and easily along the canal without losing the intimacy of a smaller vessel.
