What’s a holiday to Venice without a waft along its canals? Today, you’ll experience a boat trip around the city built on water. Your tour guide will point out some of the city’s best-known landmarks en route along the Guidecca Canal. You’ll get to see impressive churches, including the now emblematic dome of Santa Maria della Salute. Venice is made up of 118 islands separated by canals, and your tour ticks off some of the bigger ones that are a little further off the main waterways. Floating past San Servolo, you’ll be able to pick out some of the buildings originally built by the Benedictine monks who first inhabited the island. The world-famous St Mark’s Square is on the agenda, too, and you’ll go past the Lido, which hosts the annual Venice Film Festival.
