For the quintessential Venetian experience, take a serenaded gondola ride on the canals of Venice, followed by lunch or dinner – depending on your afternoon or evening selection. You'll swoon to the magic of Venice on your 35-minute gondola ride as you coast down the Grand Canal. Then, wend your way through the city’s romantic minor canals while listening to the serenade. Enjoy a two-course meal at Hostaria Ai Coristi Restaurant, located near Teatro La Fenice (La Fenice Theater).

Likely to Sell-out! Serenaded gondola rides on the canals of Venice regularly sell out weeks in advance. Book ahead of time to avoid disappointment.

Settle into your comfortable seat aboard a six-person, 36-foot (11-meter) gondola and be captivated by the glamour and elegance of Venice as you glide through the city’s canals! Reminiscent of a time when gondolas were regularly used by upper class Venetians to traverse the canals, about 500 of the tapered wooden boats exist today, reduced from approximately 10,000 that filled the waterways a couple hundred years ago.

Departing in the afternoon or evening, drift along the Grand Canal and watch as the eye-catching palaces and churches, which line the famous channel, pass by. Your licensed gondolier – wearing classic black pants and striped shirt – will stand and expertly row with one oar through the busy watercourse throughout your 35-minute ride. A musician and a singer will also stand on board one of the boats in your flotilla to accompany your romantic journey with music and a serenade.

Admire other ornately decorated gondolas along the Grand Canal and soak up the quiet atmosphere as you float through Venice’s less crowded, narrow inner canals. At the end of the gondola ride, disembark at Campo Santa Maria del Giglio, one of the most famous piazzas (squares) in Venice.

From here, follow directions to Hostaria Ai Coristi Restaurant, located behind San Fantin Church near La Fenice Theater, for a two-course meal (choice fish or meat dishes), with a glass of house wine, water and coffee.

Please note that you can combine the 3:30pm tour with your choice of lunch (to be taken before the gondola serenade between noon and 3pm) or with dinner (to be taken between 7pm and 9pm).
