Your private boat experience will start with a direct boat pick up from your accommodation (or somewhere close by, if you don’t have access to a private dock).  Once aboard your oh-so-stylish and private Venetian taxi boat you will be greeted with a glass of Prosecco followed by an exhilerating cruise down the famous Grand Canal, crossing beneath the Rialto Bridge — a must for anyone that wants to experience that classic Venice view (and grab that picture-perfect instagram shot!). From there, we’ll head deep into the Venice canal system, exploring the smaller canals as we pass through lesser known parts of the city, such as the site of the historical city hospital and the cemetery island of San Michele. Then, depending on the tide, we will ride through the Cannaregio area, the residential part of Venice that was once the Jewish quarter where you can find one of the city’s hidden gems; the Madonna dell ‘Orto Church. As we continue along the Canal Grande, admiring its palaces and houses of nobility, your guide will serve up some delectable Cicchetti dishes and a glass of wine as an aperitivo. We will then arrive at Ponta della Dogana and the San Marco Square Bay to admire the mst iconic view of Venice, bathed in the light of sunset.  As we watch the lively goings on of the city, we’ll sip some Prosecco and sample more homemade cicchetti as the sun sets. Your private boat experience will end back at your accommodation or at some other pre-agreed spot. Your guide will be very happy to give you some recommendations on other things to see and do in the city durig your stay.
