Settle in for a carefree cruise past Venice's most picturesque islands, where you will marvel at the landmarks, many of which are iconic churches.

Board a GT motor boat right at the pier and begin cruising along the broad Giudecca Canal, the waterway just south of the central islands of Venice. Upon reaching St. George's Island, which was once known as the Isle of Cypresses, you will gaze upon San Giorgio Maggiore, a church easily recognized by its classical white marble façade. Continuing on, you will pass the small islands of San Servolo and San Lazzaro, a former leper colony that's now home to an Armenian monastery. The island is named for St. Lazarus, the patron saint of lepers.

Then, following the coastline of the Lido, a strip of land that separates the Venice Lagoon from the Adriatic, you will enter another broad canal. It runs between St. Erasmus Island, the largest in the lagoon, and lush Vignole Island. The beauty of traveling in this mode, cruising past island after island, is that you see a side of Venice often overlooked. During your cruise through Venice's waterways, you will also admire one of the most fabled islands: Murano, a name that conjures up images of the exquisite glassware that has been handcrafted here since the 13th century.

Finally, as you motor back to your starting point on the pier, you will behold the historic Arsenale shipyard and what was once Venice's main cathedral on the island of San Pietro.

Please note: This tour is panoramic in nature with very limited walking (to and from the motor boat only). The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Scooters are not permitted aboard the motor boat. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable shoes are recommended. Ladies may wish to bring along a scarf as it can be breezy at times on the water.
