    Grand Canal
    Stop: 30 minutes
    Pre-book your gondola tour for just the two of you! Enjoy a 30-minute relaxing journey through the tranquil canals of Venice, away from the tourists and see Venice as it should be seen. Glide through centuries of history, allowing yourself to be captivated by the glamour and elegance of the Venetian Palazzi. The perfect way to appreciate the beauty, charm and colour of this unique city built on water. Board your private gondola and emerse yourself in this ancient Venetian tradition, experience Venice as the locals have for more than a thousand years. On this unique exploration of the Venetian romantic canals, unwind and relax into the gentle rhythms and movements of the Grand Canal, appreciating the skill involved in steering the gondola through the intricate waterways of the city. 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! This charming tour will take you one step closer to the romantic facades of Venice and will enable you to understand what it was to be truly Venetian.

We were quite disappointed with this tour. Really expensive - and just a short ride. I think other Gondola ride providers must be better.

Let’s be honest. The private gondola rides rob you at 80€ per head for 30mins...but it’s something you have to do once in your life. For this reason, I would never do it again but I would recommend this one to those who are interested. The gondalier was friendly but didn’t talk

My husband and I booked this for our honeymoon and were very disappointed with the experience. First they advertise its a 30 minute ride but ours wasn't. It was cut short by about 7 minutes and to be honest they really only take you on a ride for about 10 minutes through the
