A gondola ride is an absolute must do in Venice!
Share a 40 minute Gondola Cruise with other travelers along the canals of Venice and be entertained with music and song as you glide along the Canals of enchanting Venice.
With music filling the air and the wonderful Baroque buildings reflected in the waters, a Gondola ride is truly the best way to experience the magical city of Venice.
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:

Board the distinctive Gondola and cruise along some of Venice’s backstreets as well as the Grand Canal.
The Grand Canal has been called ‘the finest street in the world”. As your gondola flows through its shimmering waters, you will see a boulevard of baroque palazzo dating from the 12th to the 18th century.
During the Gondola ride you will be serenaded by local musicians.
The tour ends at Campo Santa Maria del Giglio.
