When you’re ready, be shown onto your shared gondola by a traditionally dressed gondolier. Each gondola seats six people, and your craft will be just one of a group of around eight gondolas that will cruise the canals together as a flotilla. A singer will board one of the gondolas in the flotilla and will serenade your group of shared gondolas as you waft along the waters.
Sit back on your seat and soak up the gorgeous scenes as your gondola bobs along some of Venice’s prettiest waterways. Dip into romantic side canals and drift along a stretch of the Grand Canal past exquisite mansions and landmarks such as the Palazzo Barberino.
Enjoy the dulcet tones and melodies of the singer traveling with your flotilla as the notes drift through the air around your gondola. Lose yourself in the Italian songs as you watch for top Venice attractions including the Peggy Guggenheim Collection museum and the Rialto, the stunning marble bridge designed by one of the finest Italian architects of the 16th century – Anthony da Ponte.
After around 35 minutes of gliding along and around the Grand Canal, return to the start pier where your gondola ride finishes.

I was so happy we booked this in advance and chose to do the Gondola Ride with Serenade. The gondola rides without serenades were in a much busier area with lots of people waiting. This was in a more secluded area. We were 5 gondolas going out as a group. There is one singer and an accordian player for the whole group. We were lucky enough to have them on our gondola. It is a must do while in Venice.

The ride was just under 30 min. We shared the gondola with another couple, the singer and an accordion player. The music was great and the musicians were wonderful and friendly. It was a highlight of the Venice visit.
