Venice Hop-on/Hop-off Canal Cruise

Explore Venice's highlights at your leisure with an easy-to-use Hop-on/Hop-off Canal Cruise. With multiple convenient stops and available in 24 or 48 hour durations, you can tailormake your own itinerary.

With this great value ticket you can hop-on and hop-off the ‘red boat’ at any of the stops throughout Venice, giving you the freedom and flexibility to explore, sightsee or visit attractions when you want.

Originally built on an archipelago of 118 small islands in 800AC, Venice today is criss-crossed by 150 canals and by 400 bridges and can only be explored by foot or boat. Which is where this ticket comes in!

Cruise around the beautiful Laguna at your own leisure and hop on and off at any of the stops on Line A (around the Venetian lagoon) and on Line B (towards the islands) to see the major sights and attractions this incredible city has to offer.
