Must see · Boat Tour · Hidden Gem · Tour
When you tour with Like a Venetian, you get to experience a historic and charming city with a local. A city built on water must be seen from the water, and this operator lets you do just that--from a traditional "topa" boat. Instead of running into big crowds on Grand Canal and other busy channels you can visit by public transport or water taxi, this tour will take you off the beaten path and reveal areas even gondolas cannot access. You can see the proposed itinerary on the website--remember, this route is a suggestion, as ultimately you decide where to go and what to see. Take a look at our Venice day trip app to schedule your visit to Like a Venetian and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
