Highlights
  • Discover Venice as you sail on a gondola along the Grand Canal and minor canals

Description

The quintessential thing to do when visiting Venice is to take a Gondola ride. Our Gondola experience provides the most economic way of touring Venice in a traditional venetian gondola, as part of a group of a maximum of 6 people.

As you glide silently through a labyrinth of canals, visiting parts of the city that are only accessible on this kind of transportation, you'll appreciate a very different Venice far from the crowds of Saint Mark's Square. Lined by sumptuous Venetian palaces and punctuated by delicate bridges, a passage through these enchanting waterways is like a journey back in time to the glorious days of the Venetian Republic.

You'll start your journey by traveling down the upper part of the Grand Canal, passing by the magnificent baroque Salute church, the ill fated Ca'Dario Palace and the famous Guggenheim museum held in Peggy Guggenheim's former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni.

Then you will leave the Grand Canal and to enjoy the more intimate environs of the labyrinth of small canals where you'll see other important landmarks that include the Fenice Opera House, Mozart's House and the beautiful San Moise' Church to name a few.

The tour will end back at the starting point of the tour.

Reviews

There was nobody at the identified location to meet us even though we had a verified date and time. We had to find a Gondola group... that would work with our reservation. The Gondola ride after that was excellent. more

We had a 30 minute gondola ride......have been waiting years to experience this....i was so disappointed...we were brought down ve...ry derilect areas with nothing to look at....the driver was so unpleasant and only spoke anything twice :-( really disappointed. Venice itself is stunning this gondola ride definitely did not show any of the beauty that is Venice more

Venice was my dream

We were so disappointed with our gondola ride. Our spent most of the time shouting to passing gondaliers. Our route was up a b...usy canal where we spent more time waiting for other gondolas to pass before we were able to pass. I would spend more money with a more reputable company more
