Very good experience, the return is through small channels and for a moment you go out to the main channel which is really beautiful, but everything is highly recommended

Is there anything more typically Venetian than a Gondola? On this tour you'll discover the canals of the city from a different, romantic, and historical point of view.

Gondola Ride

The tour meets at the chosen time on Calle Larga Ascensione, near the famous St. Mark's Square, where we'll climb aboard our gondola, sailing the Venetian canals.

We'll explore the grand canal, home to some of the most picturesque buildings in the city. We'll make our way to the church of Santa María della Salute, and having admired it from the outside, we'll make our way around the smaller canals in the area which surround the Teatro de La Fenice.

The tour ends back at the start point.
