Take an enchanting 30-minute gondola ride and glide through centuries of Venetian history as you marvel at glamorous and elegant canal-side palaces. This classic gondola tour is the perfect way to appreciate the beauty, charm, and colors of this unique city. You’ll see Venice as the locals have for more than a thousand years. For centuries, the city’s noblest and wealthiest families traveled around Venice by gondola. As you explore the Venetian canals, you’ll appreciate the skill of the gondolier in maneuvering the craft through the city’s intricate waterways. You’ll also hear the friendly banter of the gondoliers, as much a part of Venetian culture as the gondola itself.
