Discover Venice on board its most iconic mode of transport on a private gondola ride through the historic city center, and see the enchanting sestieri (districts) from a different perspective. As emblematic as its famous canals, the gondolas of Venice have mysterious origins. When they were first built, the unique boats were very different from the ones you see today. The history of the gondola is deeply bounded to the history of Venice. Built using unique techniques, each part has symbolic meanings. The multi-pronged ferro (prow) has 5 or 6 pettini to symbolize the sestieri. Made of iron to balance the weight of the gondolier, the “S” shape evokes the flow of the Grand Canal. Climb aboard one of these majestic vessels to experience the colors, sights, and charm of Venice as it is meant to be seen. Admire elegant palaces and unique bridges, and experience the timeless beauty of Venice from the water.
