A visit to Venice is not complete unless you take a gondola ride down the world-famous Grand Canal.

A classic gondola ride is the perfect way to appreciate the beauty, charm and color of this unique city built on water. You will be enthralled by the elegance of the grand mansions with their fine facades and richly toned plaster work.

You’ll also explore many hidden canals so small you can literally touch the palazzos and breathe in the Italian culture, all the while being cradled in the atmosphere unique only to Venice.

Feel part of an ancient Venetian tradition and experience Venice as the locals have for more than a thousand years.

This is not a private tour, your Gondola will be shared with others, if you are looking for a more intimate experience we do also offer two private tours:

For your Classic Venetian Gondola Tour you should make your way to the gondola park at Santa Maria del Giglio next to the Hotel Gritti Palace.

Step into your craft, lie back on cushions and be transported back in time as your gondolier propels you along. Feel part of an ancient Venetian tradition and experience Venice as the locals have for more than a thousand years.

Unwind and relax into the gentle rhythms and movements of the canals, appreciating the skill involved in steering the gondola through the intricate waterways. As you sit back and take in the views, you will inevitably become involved in the friendly banter of the gondoliers - as much a part of Venetian culture as the gondola itself!

While you glide along the Canal Grande (Grand Canal) look up at the glorious palazzos above you. Built by wealthy merchants and powerful families these beautiful buildings are in a range of mellow colors and styles from Byzantine to Baroque.

Your 35-minute ride ends at the starting point.
