Explore the Most Romantic City in the World Onboard a City Sightseeing Red Boat!

There are about 97 cities or towns named after Venice in the world, and for a reason. Venezia is and will always be a unique city.

Built on an archipelago of 118 small islands around 800 B.C., Venice is an extraordinary mix of artistic and cultural influences that reached the city by land and most of all by sea over the centuries. Venice is crossed by 150 canals and connected by over 400 bridges: that's why you can only visit the city on foot or by boat. Admiring the beauty and splendour of the city from the sea is a lifetime experience you will never forget. City Sightseeing launches its own "red boats" to accompany you around the Laguna.

The typical Hop-On Hop-Off service allows you to get on and off from the boat at any stop: visit the major sights and attractions at your own pace.

From Piazza San Marco to Ponte dei Sospiri, and from the beaches of Lido to the Island of Murano, City Sightseeing 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 admire the beautiful surroundings.

City Sightseeing Venice offers you 4 brand new unique panoramic boats in the city of Venice! Boats are composed by one indoor area to be able to move comfortably in winter or with air conditioning for the summer, as well as an outdoor area that allows you to enjoy the sun and the sea with a breathtaking view!

Choose between a 24 or 48-Hour Ticket and start exploring!
