Enjoy an enchanting private gondola ride in Venice and glide through the picturesque canals of the romantic city. Be captivated by the unique city built on water and the elegance of the Venetian Palazzi.

Experience the ancient Venetian tradition as the locals have for more than a thousand years. Once upon a time the most noble and wealthy of families would have travelled around by gondola - the slightly eccentric Peggy Guggenheim was the last person to have her own private gondola in the 1960's.

Embark on a romantic journey through the Venetian canals, enjoy the gentle rhythms and movements of the Grand Canal, and admire the skill involved in steering the gondola ride through the intricate waterways of Venice.
