Venice as you've never seen it before!
In a city where boats are more important than cars and waterways act like 'streets', we suggest you escape the crowds and enjoy its spectacular sights in peace, on a day trip with a differnce: by kayak!
Hotel Cipriani is an iconic Orient-Express hotel that commands unrivalled views of the lagoon and Doge's Palace and offers guest a truly novel way to view the palaces on the Grand Canal up close and very personal with the ability to also explore canals inaccessible to pedestrians. Venice almost becomes another city with this Kayak tour that sets off in the morning from Certosa Island and finds you paddling across the lagoon at a relaxed pace, once you arrive you'll stop for a delicious lunch break, then return before sunset. Or, for the romantic at heart, an evening tour lets you have the waterways almost to yourself and affords unforgettable sights such as the lights from St Mark's Square glimmering on the water.
Arranged with Venice Kayak, the Hotel Cipriani tours are the best way to actively explore Venice's lagoon. Along the way, there's time to visit a gondola factory or indulge in a gelato. This tour will find you feeling like a local, as you glide through the canal city, you'll discover tiny islands, forgotten monasteries and orchards and get a close up view of the local wildlife - bellissimo!
