From private transfers from Venice cruise port, a fully licensed private guide and even a private gondola ride, your time in Venice is sure to be magical from start to finish!


The port of Venice is the eighth port in Italy for commercial traffic and the most important in the Mediterranean Sea for cruise passengers in search of Venice shore trips.

Venice is known as the floating city, making it one of the most beautiful places in the world but also one of the most difficult to navigate. Venice is a complex labyrinth of canals, which replace the traditional roads!
Fear not! In our shore trips to Venice, our private tour escort and private driver with boat will meet you directly at your cruise dock and will accompany you to the center of Venice. In this way you won’t waste time looking for a way to reach Venice or spend time in line to hop on a boat.

You will feel like a real VIP during your shore trip to Venice. With our private shore trip from Venice port, you will visit all of Venice’s highlights, such as: the Doge’s Palace, the beautiful St Mark’s Basilica, St Mark’s Square and the famous Bridge of Sighs.
