After meeting your guide in San Marco, hop aboard an authentic gondola and set off down Venice’s iconic Grand Canal! As with all Venetian gondola rides, the exact route taken on the day of your tour will depend on water levels and accessibility. Rest assured though – you're guaranteed to see Venice's most memorable attractions whatever the weather!
In your small group of no more than six people, glide gracefully through the water with a master gondolier as your guide. The waters of Venice have different charms and appeals, and you'll see the varying facets of this unique city during your tour. Float through the busy waters of the vast Grand Canal before drifting along the quieter, narrower canals of Sestriere San Marco.
Sights you are sure to see during your 1-hour gondola tour include the beautiful Rialto Bridge with its smooth marble facade, the busy Venice markets and the house where Mozart reportedly stayed during visits to the Carnival of Venice. Your expert gondolier guide will also point out the famous Fenice Theatre, translated as "Theater of the Phoenix." Like its namesake, this eye-catching building is said to have risen from the ashes after being burned down several times during its unlucky history. Strain your ears as you pass, and you may hear the opera singers rehearsing inside!
Your 1-hour gondola ride ends near Piazza San Marco, the popular square shadowed by historic buildings and fine architecture.
