Venice Gondola Ride

Live your dream of cruising on an interesting Venice gondola ride through Venice’s romantic canals.

The gondola is one of Venice’s most iconic ships. Not many individuals understand that this distinctive ship once was very distinct from the one we admire today and developed alongside Venice.

Considered one of the most lovely and elegant ships on Earth, unique methods are used to build a gondola; each component has its own unique symbolism. It has six pettini, its multi-pronged ferro, or prow, symbolizing the six sestieri into which Venice is split. The iron piece’s role is to balance the weight of the gondolier. The S-shape evokes the Grand Canal’s curve.

A whole world embodied in a ship, then, not only elegance and beauty.

Experience Venice’s beauty on a Gondola Ride in Venice.

An enchanting and relaxing way of enjoying Venice’s colors, lights, sights, charm and beauty. We will admire elegant palaces on the bank side, distinctive bridges and breathe the charm and magic that can only be given to you by a city constructed on water.

Aid for boarding will be given. Sharing the journey (max. 6 passengers). Let the local gondolier bring you along the hidden canals of Venice with his unique blue and white stripped shirt.
