Treat yourself to a 30-minute trip on the Grand Canal (up to 6 people per gondola)

What to expect

Embark on a gondola ride traveling down the Grand Canal where you'll be able to see wondrous beauty and culture in every direction. You'll be able to admire the zone of S. Maria della Salute as well as other minor canals in the area. The magnificent journey ends at the small port of Vallaresso (Dogana).

Today the Grand Canal is filled with modern transportation, but the gondolas still hold a valuable place in Venice’s history as one of the icons of the city. In the 17th and 18th century it is estimated that there were anywhere from eight to ten thousand gondolas that treaded through the canals of Venice. Today the art of the gondolier is preserved in the historical center of Venice, where only four hundred gondolas remain.

Taking a ride on a gondola gives you a different perspective of the city and takes you by places that you might have not been able to reach by foot. To guarantee you maximum fun and relaxation, no guide will be present during the gondola ride. Take this time to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!
