  • Overview
    A visit to Venice is not complete unless you take a gondola ride down the world-famous Grand Canal.

    A classic gondola ride is the perfect way to appreciate the beauty, charm and color of this unique city built on water. Step into your craft and be transported back in time as your gondolier propels you along. Feel part of an ancient Venetian tradition and experience Venice as the locals have for more than a thousand years.

    Unwind and relax into the gentle rhythms and movements of the canals, appreciating the skill involved in steering the gondola through the intricate waterways. As you sit back and take in the views, you will inevitably become involved in the friendly banter of the gondoliers - as much a part of Venetian culture as the gondola itself!
    While you are at the Canal Grande (Grand Canal) look up at the glorious palazzos above you. Built by wealthy merchants and powerful families these beautiful buildings are in a range of mellow colors and styles from Byzantine to Baroque.

    You’ll also explore many hidden canals that are so small, you can literally touch the palazzo, all the while being cradled in the atmosphere unique only to Venice.
