Venice Driving Tours

Venice is a city of art that you must see at least once in your life: elegant and timeless, romantic, mysterious and unique, there is no city in the world that resembles it. One way to experience Venice from another point of view, away from the masses of tourists who often populate the city for a few hours, is renting a boat or taking a relaxing gondola ride. Walks Inside Rome will take you to explore La Serenissima in the most memorable way possible through its Venice driving tours.


The City of Canals


Venice is an ancient Italian city built on the lagoon, a shallow body of salt water: its history and that of its people, in fact, is intimately linked to its relationship with water. The houses, and many buildings, were built on 118 islands, crossed by 150 canals and connected by more than 400 bridges, thus helping to create a unique environment. The city of the Doges seems to float on water, so to visit it you have to travel by boat, or with the suggestive and typical gondolas, these canals that replace the streets. Obviously, all buildings on the water have foundations that resist the salt of the sea.


Over the centuries, its “privileged” position between marshes and marshy waters gave Venice great independence as it allowed it to be protected from possible conquerors. In reality the houses in Venice are not installed directly on the water, but thanks to original construction techniques they are founded on a hundred muddy islets, connected by a myriad of canals separated from the sea by a coastal barrier called Lido. The intent for the Venetians was to build a foundation strong enough to support the weight of the buildings.


Discovering the island’s secrets


The richness of the architecture and art treasures and the unique character of the city, in addition to the numerous cultural events that are held there, make Venice one of the most beautiful cities in the world. In 1987, not surprisingly, UNESCO included Venice and its lagoon among the world heritage sites.


The Grand Canal is Venice’s main waterway, filled with gondolas and vaporettos. See the majestic Renaissance and Gothic palaces along the canals and enjoy the feeling of having stepped back in time. Experience the thrill of sailing and discovering the lagoon at a leisurely pace, observing the landscape from a privileged point of view.


Here are the unmissable places and what to visit in Venice during your trip to Italy:



  • St. Mark’s Square overlooked by the St. Mark’s Basilica

  • Ducal Palace

  • The famous bridges

  • The Accademia Galleries

  • The Peggy Guggenheim Museum


However, the beauties of the Venetian territory are encountered by continuing to navigate in the Venice Lagoon, where we find Murano, famous for the ancient art of blown glass and Burano, with its colorful houses and the art of lace.


Let yourself be enchanted by this city… customize your Venice tour to your liking, seeing exactly what you want to see.
