Feel like part of the ancient Venetian tradition, and experience the city as the locals have for more than a thousand years, on this private gondola ride.
On your 25 to 30-minute journey, be taken away from the main waterways and tourist sights, as your gondolier navigates you with expertise and precision through some of the narrower, quieter canals of Venice.
As you sit back and enjoy the scenery, you'll inevitably become involved in the friendly banter of the gondoliers and their particular Venetian dialect, which is as much a part of Venetian culture as the gondola itself.
Pre-book your trip and avoid having to negotiate with the gondolier or stress about details.
