This was our favorite activity in Venice !! We had the most amazing morning. Alessadro took us all over the lagoon , visiting all the islands and sharing all sorts of interesting information about them. It was a one of a kind personal tour ....More
had a wonderful half day with Alessandro who was the perfect host, so friendly and accommodating, perfect english and a lovely personality
it was a real highlight of our stay in venice and so good to see the beautiful islands that surround the area
This was definitely one of the highlights during our stay in Venice. Although we were OK and expecting the crazy crowd in main Venice, it was amazing to tour other islands and experience another side of Venice- a very calm and quiet side. Alessandro was...More
Alessandro was a great tour guide, and seeing Venice by boat is a worthwhile experience. We visited Burano and another island with a 15th century church and bell tower. We got out of the boat and explored both these islands. We did a three hour...More
Easily the highlight of our stay in Venice. We did a four hour tour. Our group of 5 ranged from 12 to 78 and had no trouble with the boat and actually had fun getting in and out the boat. Alessandro was understanding, informative and...More
We went on a private 4 hour tour with Allessandro. All three of us thoroughly enjoyed the tour side of it, and just being out on the water. Allessandro took us through canals, then across the lagoon to Burano and Murano. We didn’spend as much...More
This tour is the absolute best way to see Venice at a very reasonable price.
The Gondolas are so overrated and disappointing - slow, overpriced, with hordes of tourists gawking at you. This boat tour experience wins hands down!
Alessandro was very knowledgeable and happy...More
This is the best part of our stay in Venice. I tried to book just a day before and Nicolè was able to fit us in - she was reachable by email quite late at night as we were figuring out logistics so that was...More
After battling the crowds on our first afternoon we were looking to escape...an early morning search of Trip Advisor revealed excellent feedback on Allesandro's. private boat tour of the islands, so a 7.30am email was fired off to his wife Giulia in the hope that...More
We were in Venice the last week of August for a very short stay. To see the islands and escape the crowds and the heat, we booked a boat excursion with Biasin Boat Rentals based on the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. Giulia was incredibly responsive...More
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
