What to expect

The gondola is one of the main symbols of Venice, as emblematic of the famous city of water as it is mysterious in its origins. Not many people know that at the beginning this unique vessel was different from the one we can admire today, changing across time together with the city it is associated to. Of course, the history of the gondola is deeply bound to the one of Venice.

Considered one of the most beautiful and elegant boats on earth, the gondola is built using unique techniques and every single part of it also hides symbolic meanings. For example, its toothed bow iron has five or six rebbi (combs), which are each symbolic of the six sestieri (districts) into which Venice is divided. The function of this part made of iron is to balance the weight of the gondolier and it has an 'S' shape that evokes the flow of the Grand Canal.

Let yourself experience in first person the gondola through this tour. An enchanting and relaxing way to enjoy the colors, lights, sights, charm and beauty of Venice. You'll be able to admire elegant buildings on the side banks and unique bridges, and breathe in the fascinating and magical atmosphere that only a city built on the water can offer.
