Overview

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.

Slide among centuries of history and picturesque views on a traditional Venetian gondola, an experience hardly to forget.

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 with. Of course, the history of the gondola is deeply bonded 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 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 gondolier’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 the symbol of Venice.

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

An enchanting and relaxing way to enjoy the colours, lights, sights, charm and beauty of Venice. You will admire elegant bank-side palaces, unique bridges and breathe the charming and magic atmosphere that only a town built on the water can give you.

You’ll see a lot of beautiful bridges and buildings and although this is a short 30 min ride, it was well worth it.

You cannot come to Venice without experiencing a Gondola ride. This has to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world and having no roads and traffic to contend with made it all the more enchanting. My husband and I stayed in Venice for a few days and booked this tour online. The company were well organized and our boat trip was amazing. Seeing everyone going about their daily business on water was the highlight of this tour for me. This was our very first trip to Venice and we were not disappointed.

This was the perfect way to celebrate our arrival to Venice. I would recommend it to everyone. In addition, the tour operator was incredibly helpful as we used the same company for all of our tours.

The gondola ride itself was pleasant however; the gondolier spent all of his time shouting at other gondoliers. It is a shame that you look forward to a tour which is supposed to be the highlight of a trip to Venice to have it spoiled by aggressive shouting. I am not blaming the company as it was easy to book and to find the meeting place. I noticed that this shouting was a common occurrence as all of the gondoliers were shouting at each other.

The gondola tour was the highlight of my vacation to Italy. This has been on my bucket list for a very long time and although Venice is very busy, I really enjoyed this tour. It was short but I was so pleased that I booked another longer Gondola ride. Thank you.
