What's not included

Gratuities (optional)
  • Enjoy an authentically Venetian experience at the best price – other gondola rides can set you back hundreds of euros!
  • For centuries Venetians have used the gondola as their main mode of transportation. Now you can experience it yourself.
  • Float along the serene canals of Venice and through part of the world-famous and more expansive Grand Canal

In a city with no roads, boats rule supreme. Locals might favor motors, but everyone needs to experience Venice by gondola at least once. Sit back and feel your cares melt away as your stripy-shirted gondolier glides you through a maze of waterways, before joining the central Grand Canal.

This once-in-a-lifetime experience just asks for a perfect picture. Luckily for you, with just five other people on board (including the gondolier), you have more than enough space for a selfie.

Don’t be surprised if you attract a little envy on this voyage. Most tourists easily part with a hundred bucks for a short gondola ride, while you’ll be parading over the water for a pittance. But that’s our secret… shhh!

It’s a must-do in La Serenissima.
