With over 400 bridges and 177 canals, Venice is rightly known as the ‘City of Canals’ and the ‘City of Bridges’. Built over 118 islands, the canals form the lifeline of the city. The city grew around these canals creating a unique environment and architecture unlike any other in the world. The best way to explore Venice is by foot and water.
Like all major cities in the world, Venice has Hop on Hop off Tours, but instead of a bus it’s on a boat! The HOHO Boat Tours allow you to hop on and hop off at major stops across the city to view its attractions and monuments. The tour has seven major stops and allows you to travel across Venice, Murano and Lido Island. They are –
You can hop on and hop off as many times as you want within a 24 hour or 48 hour period depending on your ticket. These stops will give you walking distance access to major tourist destinations like The San Marco Piazza, Doge’s Palace, the beaches and resorts of Lido Island and the island of Murano with its glass making factories.
The Hop on Hop Off tour will help you save time by providing easy access to all parts of Venice with one ticket. You can simply walk to the stop and get on your boat to whizz to your next destination! And when you are tired of walking along the promenade, you can relax in the boat and enjoy the breeze while soaking in the sights of Venice.
Your Hop on Hop Off Boat Tour in Venice will also save you money by buying one ticket instead of dealing with each gondolier or private taxi to ferry you across the canals. This HOHO Boat Tour will help you explore Venice at your own pace both on land and water, offering you the freedom to fully appreciate the hidden secrets of Venice!
