Romantic ride on the prettiest canals of Venice

The most romantic way to indulge in the magic of Venice is to take a relaxing gondola ride through this unique city. This tour lasts around 30 minutes and takes you around some of the many narrow enchanting canals of Venice. You will be able to admire the old buildings and the many years of history as your officially licensed gondolier (dressed in striped shirt and dark trousers) leads you around some of the more quite, romantic canals in a luxury gondola.

Both private VIP experience and small-group gondola rides (with a max. of 6 passengers) are available. Please specify at your time of booking which is your preference.


About gondolas in Venice

For hundreds of years, gondolas were the chief means of transportation and most common watercraft within Venice. In modern times, the boats still have a role in public transport in the city, serving as traghetti (ferries) over the Grand Canal. They are also used in special regattas (rowing races) held amongst gondoliers. However, the main use for gondolas today is to give tourists a romantic, relaxing view of the city. The gondola is the symbol of Venice and exudes charm and romance. It really is the most unforgettable way of viewing the city as there is no doubt that Venice was built to be seen from the water.
