Tour Description

Venice is unlike any other place on earth and you’ll experience all of its mysteries and allure when you travel by gondola through its famous canals.

Book your Gondola Ride Experience with us and all you need to do is meet our representative at the Gondola Station. We’ll handle all of the arrangements to ensure the next 30 minutes are a portal of discovery for you.

Our expert, official gondoliers are all locals, and know the very best routes to make you feel like a local, too.

Venice keeps her secrets close but you’ll get to know the city intimately on this trip.

We begin at the Grand Canal, Venice’s main thoroughfare. Settle back in your gondola and take in your surroundings as we pass the famous Santa Maria della Salute Church. This 17th century Baroque masterpiece was built by survivors of the plague.

Then, we’ll turn into one of the quieter canals and you’ll have a chance to explore Venice’s more secretive sights.

As we spend time away from the main waterways, you’ll discover Fenice Opera House and Theatre, Mozart’s Venetian home, the Church of San Moisè, and the gothic Bauer Palace.

A maximum of six people can go on our Gondola Rides, which means that you’re guaranteed an intimate experience. Venice is a delight no matter how you discover the city, but it’s extra special to travel off of the beaten track and away from the crowds when you’re in the Floating City.
