Private Tour: Venice Gondola Ride with Serenade

4.5 81 Reviews

  • Location: Venice, Italy
  • Duration: 35 minutes (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2495ABTOUR3P
Soak up the romance of Venice on a 35-minute private gondola ride! The elegant gondola boat seats between 2 and 4 people, meaning it’s a perfect intimate experience for just you and your special someone, or a small family group. As your gondolier serenades you with Italian songs and punts you around the canals, look out at Venice’s elegant palaces, buildings and boats. Your route includes the captivating Grand Canal as well as several atmospheric side canals.

Highlights

  • Private guide for a more personalized experience
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
  • Great overview and orientation of the city
  • Choice of several departures throughout the day
Head to the Hotel Bauer gondola stop in central Venice either during the day or at night – whatever time suits you best – and then hop aboard your elegant gondola boat. With just your group (2-4 people maximum) on board, plus your own gondolier, your boat will glide away into the waters of the Grand Canal.

Once the main form of transport around the beautiful water-logged city of Venice, gondolas have more or less been replaced by the vaporetti (water buses) for getting quickly around. But nothing beats a pleasant glide around Venice by traditional gondola boat, passing the city’s Gothic palazzos and elegant bridges at a gentle pace.

Look out at the hustle and bustle of the ancient Grand Canal, seeing vaporetti, water taxis and other gondolas passing by, and then cruise along some of the quieter canals that act as side streets through the city. Sit back and relax as your gondolier serenades you with a song, and soak up the romantic atmosphere of Venice from the canals.

After 35 minutes out on the water, glide back to the start point where your gondola ride finishes.

I can't put into words how good this ride was. My wife and I were simply expecting the gondolier to be singing while traveling the canals. To our very pleasant surprise, we boarded the gondola with an accordion player and soprano. When she began to sing, we were simply in awe. Our private show was enjoyed by the many people walking the bridges of Venice, as well...but we felt as if this was our own private concert. A experience that will last in our memories forever!
