Full description
Share precious moments with a loved one on a 20-minute gondola ride of Venice at night, and experience the city from a unique mode of transport.

It has been estimated that there were up to 10,000 gondolas operating on the canals of Venice during the 17th and 18th centuries. Today, there are just 400 still in active service. Get the opportunity to experience Venice like a local - of centuries gone by!

Learn how each part of the boat has symbolic meanings, such as the significance of the 5 or 6 pettini (prongs) on the ferro (prow) to symbolize the sestieri (districts) of the city. Made of iron to balance the weight of the gondolier, the 'S' shape is said to evoke the flow of the Grand Canal.
