Among the most famous and beloved symbols of Venice, the gondolas have long been the favorite of travelers from around the world. Floating with the typical Italian grace and elegance, these beautiful boats are almost as renowned as the city itself, so a gondola tour of Venice is among the highlights of any visit to La Serenissima.
Discover Venice on board a typical gondola

There are few things which can compete with a classic gondola ride in Venice, discovering the most impressive sights in the city, meeting the friendly gondoliers and learning more about the century old tradition of Venice.
Not so long ago, the upper class had its own gondolas to cruise within Venice and its maze of smaller canals. Today, this is mostly a privilege of tourists, keeping this authentic Venetian occupation alive.

Venice Walking Tour and Gondola Ride was great!
We had just one day in Venice and decided to do the walking tour and gondola ride. It was a great experience and we're so glad we decided to do it.
We saw and learned more than we ever could have on our own!

A gondola ride makes your trip to Venice complete. We had a fantastic Gondolier who spoke English and gave us a guided tour. Not to be missed.

Wonderful Gondola experience
Something you can not afford to miss is a super Gondola ride around the canals of Venice. We took a ride from the Grand Canal near the station. We were given a price at the start and had a very well informed trip and commentary all the local attraction and history. You also see Venice from a viewpoint that most only see from the bridges and pathways. An excellent attraction
