Service was terrific - Gianluca's guided tour of the history of the canals and buildings was most informative. Would definitely do this private tour again upon our return visit to Venice!

Gianlucca knows the Venice canals like the back of his hand. He is also a teriffic boatsman. A great 2 hour tour like no orher. A "must do" trip and a wonderful way to see Venice. Highly recommended.

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
