Luxurious motor launch, heart-stopping views, film locations, Grand Palaces, intrigue, scandal and lifestyles of the rich and famous.
Don’t just see the Grand Canal, experience for yourself the lifestyles of the rich and famous with a spicy sprinkling of gossip from those in the know.
Our charming bronzed water taxi skippers have ferried some of the world’s most famous celebrities as well as being the stunt drivers for blockbuster films such as the 007 epic ‘Casino Royale’.
We will pass famous palaces and sights used in films as our skippers have their fingers on the pulse of Venice, knowing every mossy, misty canal, crumbling palace and skeleton in the cupboard!
Whilst gliding along the Grand Canal, an extraordinarily beautiful and unique high way, we will marvel at the stately procession of sumptuous water palaces gazing proudly upon centuries of comings and goings. Our entertaining companions will bear us along this splendid processional route while we see the palaces of the rich and famous. Hear about celebrities’ favorite local places to hang out as well as discovering just why Venice is the sublime capital of masked carnivals, reveries, intrigue, and romance!
