Overview
Sometimes, a classic tour is better than an original one. Take a classic guided gondola ride along the Grand Canal and watch for sights such as the Rialto Bridge, St. Mark’s Square, and other popular Venice sights from its most iconic boat. You’ll also pass smaller canals and passageways not visible from the city’s narrows streets. The 30-minute ride is a great introduction to Venice for travelers short on time.
What to Expect
Begin at Campo San Luca, and make your way to the Canal Grande. Hop on a gondola shared with up to five people. Your gondolier takes you on a 30-minute ride across different parts of central Venice, from the Canal Grande to minor canals that pass by St. Mark’s Square and the Rialto Bridge.

Meander along quiet, peaceful stretches while taking in waterside views.

Pass alleys, side streets, and passageways not visible from streets or water taxis. Relax while you take part in one of Venice’s original pastimes.

The tour finishes at Bacino Orseolo behind St. Mark’s Square.

A must in Venice

This was nice. We were able to skip the incredibly long line (and we weren't there at peak season.) It's not the romantic personal ride you see in the movies but still, if you go to Venice you have to ride a gondola, right? So...More

A must do in Venice

Your Venice trip is incomplete without this. A must do. This ride will take you through the small canals and wet lanes that the city is full of. It will take you close to the actual heart of venice. As you ride through the old...More

Nice ride

Seeing as most of the gondola rides are extremely pricey and over at least 80 euros this was a good way to get the experience for less. It was a smooth and quiet ride around. I was able to buy my ticket a couple hours...More

ride was great

Venice is very tricky to navigate around and with limited signs it was even more difficult to find. Once we found the travel agent we were fine. the ride itself was amazing and well worth it.
