Overview

The gondola is one of the main symbols of Venice, as emblematic of the famous water city as mysterious in its origins. Not many people know that at the beginning this unique vessel was different from the one we can admire today, changing across time together with the city it is associated to. Of course, the history of the gondola is deeply bounded to the one of Venice.

Considered one of the most beautiful and elegant boats on Earth, it is built through unique techniques and each part of it also has symbolic meanings. For example, its multi-pronged ferro, or prow, does have five or six “pettini”, symbolic of the six “sestieri” in which Venice is divided into. The function of this part made of iron is to balance gondoliere’s weigh and it has an “S” shape evoking the flow of the Canal Grande. Not only elegance and beauty then, a whole world embodied into this boat nowadays symbol of Venice.

Let yourself experience in first person the gondola through this tour.

You will admire elegant bank-side palaces, unique bridges and breath the charming and magic atmosphere that only a town built on water can give you.

Can you imagine a better experience to share with the people you love? Probably difficult to find.

Just take your smile and beloved one with you, the timeless beauty of Venice seen from the gondola will do the rest.

An enchanting and relaxing way to enjoy the colors, lights, sights, charm and beauty of Venice.

My sister and I chose this tour for our first day in India, and are very glad we did! . He was very helpful, funny, and had a lot of great information for us. Definitely recommend this tour! .

The ride was to be for 30 minutes and pass the Riotto Bridge. The ride was only 15 minutes and was nowhere near the bridge. But it was a lovely experience

The gondola ride was really special and added a nice dimension to seeing Venice you don’t get by foot. Our gondolier Giovanni was great and showed us some landmarks along the way. Highly recommend!

We booked a private gondola ride and our gondalier was Maradona. He was very friendly, pointed out some key spots to check out along the ride and also in the city in our spare time. And he even sang happy birthday to me in Italian :)
