TAXI TOUR
TOUR OF THE GRAND CANAL BY TAXI (with guide)

Venice is a unique city well known around the world, a dream dwelling and ideal retreat for poets and artists.
The view from the water is the most natural and favored way to observe the rhythm of city life, travelling on its numerous rios and canals one can admire this enchanting amphibious city. There are two main waterways in Venice: The Giudecca Canal and the Grand Canal, the latter of which divides the city into two parts. The two sides were formerly called de citra meaning here and de ultra meaning there in respect to St. Mark’s Square. The Grand Canal, affectionately named Canalazzo by the Venetians, is the most important and well known waterway in Venice. This one of a kind waterway seem as if an old-fashioned fan as been spread open, unfolding itself to the viewer to admire its many beautiful and elaborate palazzi that were once part of the noble Venetian merchants’ lavish lives. “It is the most beautiful road that exists in the world, lined with the finest buildings, and it is as long as the city. The palaces are large and tall, made of good stone, the old ones all painted; the others, built over the last hundred years, have a white marble façade ...” spoken by French Ambassador Philippe de Commynes, who arrived in Venice in 1495. This magnificent waterway and its splendid succession of buildings still astonishes everyone who sees it today.

"The Grand Canal, with its serpentine turns, does not surrender its beauty to any other road in the world, nor is there room to withstand comparison because of its position in front of St. Mark’s Square." Johann Wolfgang Goethe
