  • Venice: Panoramic Cruise & Sunset Spritz

    1. Venice: Panoramic Cruise & Sunset Spritz

    Join this panoramic cruise and enjoy a typical Venetian aperitif in St. Mark's Basin. Take in a stunning sunset on board as you pass in front of Saint Mark's Square. The local partner will show you the most beautiful and romantic spots in Venice and its islands. It's a great way to relax after a long day of sightseeing and is the perfect tour to take with friends, family, or your partner, admiring dreamy places and listening to music. Schedule 6:50 PM: Pick up from Caserma Cornoldi Pier 2 7:10 PM: Boarding and departure of the panoramic tour 8:10 PM: End of the tour (at the place of the departure)

    Gorgeous evening. The tour from the boat is just long enough to see the sights and enjoy the ride during the sunset. The ‘Spritz’ drink was pretty bad though. If you want more than the one complimentary drink (you probably won’t) additional beverages are available for 5 Euro/each per the event description.

  • Dorsoduro District, Venice: Private Tour

    2. Dorsoduro District, Venice: Private Tour

    Starting at the Gallerie dell'Accademia you will start a unique walk through the Dorsoduro district. You will first head towards the Basilica della Salute, a fascinating example of Baroque architecture, and arrive at Punta della Dogana, the best panoramic spot in town overlooking the heart of the Venetian lagoon and S. Mark's Square. In the meantime, you will walk by the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the beautiful secret corners of the city's most exclusive area. Enjoy walking along the side of the Giudecca Canal and stop for a coffee or ice cream before discovering where the gondolas – traditional Venetian black boats – are made by hand. Local Venetians absolutely adore this district because it maintains a human dimension with its 'campi,' the equivalent of small squares. University students roam around these squares, people shop at the local fruit and vegetable stalls, and families...

Really enjoyed the sunset cruise - easy to find the meeting point and great host who spoke in many languages ! Such beautiful views of Venice at sunset , would highly recommend doing this ! We decided to do this instead of a gondola ride !

The boat was nice and spacious.

This tour was $10 less a person than another company. Our boat was nice. We were served Spritz and chips. We really couldn’t understand the guide on the speaker, but we were really only interested in the views.

we didn't get much sunset because of the weather but the cruise was regardless very pleasant. our guide was very friendly and informative. Aperol tasted great. We enjoyed it a lot.
