Majestic Venice Wheelchair Shore Excursion

Venice-Grand-Canal-Boat-TourHalf day in St. Mark’s neighborhood with 1-hour Grand Canal tour

Imagine leisurely gliding down the Grand Canal with a private guide explaining all the sights along the way. What an experience!

The Majestic Venice Wheelchair Shore Excursion will start with a private wheelchair accessible van picking you up at the cruise dock and bringing you to a meetup point by the accessible water taxi. Your tour guide will meet you here and join you on the water taxi as you head out on a 1-hour Grand Canal tour! The Grand Canal tour will allow you to see many fascinating sights in a short period of time, without having to worry about accessibility and getting around.  Escorted by your guide, you’ll then continue your morning visiting St. Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace, two of the very best highlights of the city. Your guide is experienced in touring with elderly and disabled visitors, and will lead you using wheelchair friendly routes.

Upon completion of your memorable Venice tour, you will be escorted back to the cruise ship.
