Experience romantic Venice as you cruise around the city’s waterways on a hop-on hop-off boat tour. Choose from a 24- or 48-hour pass and glide down the scenic canals past landmarks like the Bridge of Sighs and Palazzo Rezzonico.

What to Expect
Built on an archipelago of 118 small islands in 800 AC, Venice today is an extraordinary mixture of artistic and cultural influences. Your hop-on hop-off tour gives you the freedom to get on and off from the boat at any stop, visiting the major sights and attractions at your own pace.
From Piazza San Marco to the Ponte dei Sospiri, from the beaches of Lido to the Island of Murano, this City Sightseeing tour will take you on a trip through history, culture, and tradition in the most romantic city in the world. All you have to do is take a seat and soak up your surroundings.
Come to the new City Sightseeing Venice Visitor Center, ask for any info about the tour and the city, collect your map, and redeem your voucher. The Visitor Center is located inside the main train station Venezia Santa Lucia, next to Freccia Club, in front of platforms 13 and 14 and it is very close to Line A STOP N. 1. It is open from 8.30 am up to 5.30 pm. Click on 'view additional info' to download the Venice Hop-On Hop-Off map.

Relaxing on the canal

Joined boat and did the full route. Out to Morano , up to port & train station and back. Took almost 3 hours but the weather was lovely. Good value for money.

Absolute waste of time

This was an absolute waste of time. In different lines do not coordinate their timetables. Have to wait 1-2 hours between boats on both the same line and different lines. For example, line B on Murano arrives after line A leaves Murano to go back...More

Complete waste of time and money - Rip off

Many readers will have used the Hop on-Hop Off bus tours in other cities around the world and found that they are an ideal way to become immediately familiar and orientated culturally, historically and geographically, listening to the multi-lingual guide through headphones. THIS IS NOT!...More

Not worth the money

I was expecting good things from this having been on many City Sightseeing tours across Europe, however this one is very poor. €27 a day is very steep when it doesn’t actually include any commentary - you are far better off using the excellent river...More
