The Common Wanderer are made up of Mark and Mim. He’s a weet-bix fuelled adventure freak who’s visited 35 countries, summited Kilimanjaro and trekked to Basecamp. She’s a caffeine-fuelled traveller and writer of words, who’s most content on the road, armed with her trusty notebook and pen, a coffee and her DSLR. You can read their adventures at thecommonwanderer.com
Venice is the kind of place that you either absolutely love… or totally hate. The city often gets criticised for being crowded with too many tourists, but that’s because too many visitors don’t know how to escape the same old sites and find the real local side of life. That’s why we invited travellers The Common Wanderer to come try out our Canal & Aperitivo Experience, which eschews the cliché gondolas in favour of an authentic local ride in a Venetian motoscafi, or water taxi. Here’s their take on seeing the Floating City in a whole new (local) way.
Want to have this experience for yourself? Hop on board our Canal & Aperitivo Experience for a true literal taste of local life along the canals of Venice!
Go local in a Venetian boat taxi that’ll take you through the city’s lesser known canals. View Venice from the water, past sites like Rialto and San Marco.
