Full description
Book your enchanting private gondola ride in Venice and glide through centuries of history, allowing yourself to be captivated by the glamor and elegance of the Venetian Palazzi. This experience is the perfect way to appreciate the beauty, charm, and color of this unique city built on the water. Feel a part of the ancient Venetian tradition and experience Venice as the locals have for more than a thousand years. Once upon a time the most noble and wealthy of families would have traveled around by gondola - with the slightly eccentric Peggy Guggenheim the last person to have her own private gondola in the 1960s. On this unique exploration of the romantic Venetian canals, unwind and relax to the gentle rhythms and movements of the Grand Canal. Appreciate the skill involved in steering the gondola ride, as you make your way through the intricate waterways of Venice. As you sit back and take in the views, enjoy the friendly banter of the gondoliers - as much a part of Venetian culture as the gondola itself. This charming gondola ride takes you one step closer to the romantic facades of the city, enabling you to understand what it is to be truly Venetian.

Was nice but only 50min and gondolier was speaking on the phone very loud most of the time. That spoiled the mood. No information about the surroundings was given. He's only steering. Don't expect a guide.

We paid for 1 hour and got roughly 45 minutes of ride. The ride was extra slow to accomodate the 30 minute route into something closer to one hour.
