Canal & Aperitivo Experience


Forget the gondola! Go local in a Venetian boat taxi that takes you through the city’s lesser known canals. View Venice from the water while riding past main sites such as Rialto and San Marco, and head into the local neighbourhoods of Cannaregio or Castello. Finish it all up with an aperitivo of local wines and cicchetti at sunset.
