Waft by the beautiful sights of Venice on a 35-minute shared gondola ride and enjoy a serenade, too. Select an afternoon or evening trip, be welcomed aboard your six-passenger gondola by a traditionally dressed gondolier, and set off in a group of around eight gondolas, with a singer aboard one of the boats. Admire the Rialto Bridge, Palazzo Barberino and other romantic landmarks as your flotilla navigates the Grand Canal and smaller waterways, and soak up the dulcet melodies from the flotilla’s singer along the way!

Choose from one of four start times when you book and, on the day, make your own way to the gondola pier near Santa Maria del Giglio Square in central Venice.
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 admit that we got lucky: the King and Queen seats on our gondola, along with the accordion player and singer too. A lovely, relaxing half an hour. Given how extortionately expensive gondola rides generally are, this tour was a good way of keeping the price reasonable. Would highly recommend.

    We had an awesome time - very authentic thing to do in Venice at a reasonable price compared to trying to do this on your own. The best part was the tour went under the window of our VRBO rental so we go to enjoy the music all week long!
