Overview
Highlights
  • For centuries Venetians have used the gondola as their main mode of transportation and now you can enjoy your own private boat – it's the best way to see Venice
  • The gondolier will pilot you through serene canals and through part of the world-famous and more expansive Grand Canal. You’ll see so much of The City of Water on this 25-minute trip
  • Enjoy an authentically Venetian experience at the best price – other gondola rides can set you back hundreds!
Description

Make your way through storied Venice and feel like a true Venetian as you stretch out in your authentic gondola. Hundreds of years of history float right before your eyes while the seasoned gondolier steers you through watery streets. It’s a must-do in La Serenissima.

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.

Your nimble craft will be weaving around bigger boats, so watch out for floating ambulances, delivery vans and fire trucks jockeying for position. Don't worry – your captain knows exactly what they're doing, and makes sure you'll get a tour to remember.

This once-in-a-lifetime experience just asks for a perfect picture. Luckily for you, with just six 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!

A must on any trip to Venice. Be the first of a group of six so that you get the double seat. As a couple you are part of a big group so there are several gondolas setting off at the same time, which makes the narrow canals rather crowded. However, well worth it as you see Venice from a different perspective - and it’s so romantic!
