Experience

Highlights
  • Experience the magic and history of Venice on a private gondola ride
  • Explore the canals and admire the picturesque city from the water
  • Pass beneath Venice’s ancient and romantic bridges
Full description
It is estimated that there were 8-10 thousand gondolas operating on the canals of Venice during the 17th and 18th centuries. Today, there are just 400 that are still in active service. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience Venice from one of these icons on a private 25-30 minute ride.

Although most of the gondolas are used for touristic purposes, you'll be fascinated by the strong bond they continue to have with the history of Venice.

Learn how each part of the boat has symbolic meanings. For example, the ferro or prow has 5 or 6 pettini (prongs) to symbolize the city’s sestieri (districts). Made of iron to balance the weight of the gondolier, the S shape evokes the flow of the Grand Canal.
