The perfect dramatic opening to Venice
Cruising by private boat from Marco Polo airport to your palace hotel is a quintessential Venice experience and the best, and most romantic, way to arrive in this city of islands. As you depart the airport and glide through the lagoon, watch as the views of rural islands and sparkling water slowly give way to a vision of ocher, red and white buildings floating in the marine haze. Arrive in true Venetian style at your stunning, canal-front hotel (the Cipriani, Bauer Il Palazzo and Gritti Palace are our preferred luxury hotels in Venice), where you’ll reside in Venetian elegance when not enjoying private touring of the exquisite, densely layered cultural riches that make Venice one of the world’s most rewarding destinations. This exclusive private boat transfer is standard in all of our luxury Italy tours that visit Venice.
