Highlights
  • Skip the lines at the canal by booking a Venice gondola ride in advance
  • Relax as your gondolier takes you on a 30-minute gondola ride
  • Admire Venice’s picturesque architecture and bridges along the way
  • View sights that can only be seen from the water, not on a walking tour
What to Expect
Meet your gondolier at Calle Larga Ascensione at your pre-selected departure point. You’ll head to the front of the tourist line and step right into your gondola for an unforgettable tour of Venice. Sit back and enjoy the city from the water as your gondolier steers you peacefully through the canals. During your 30-minute journey, you’ll leave the bustle of the Grand Canal behind, gliding through some of Venice’s quieter and narrower canals. Pass under ancient bridges and admire architectural masterpieces such as the Basilica della Salute and La Fenice, the most famous opera house in Venice. Your tour ends back at your departure point.

Gondola ride was very calming and tranquil. There were 6 of us sharing one boat but it was good value for money. However, only went down a small section of the grand canal.

It's beautiful and a nice experience to go up and down the grand canal in a gondola. It's expensive so better to go for a shared gondola. They had put 3 people in one and we had a nice time enjoying the view all around. If you are looking for a romantic ride, it might or might

Yes, we went and had to do this. Yes, this is a job for Gondoliers but, the tourists are paying customers and probably would appreciate it if the gondolier passed along what they knew of the area. Ours caught up with his buddy and they bs'ed the entire trip for us all, not to us
