What to expect

Experience culture, beauty and romance of Venice in a relaxing way. Your visit to Venice would not be complete without treating yourself to a gondola ride accompanied with a beautiful serenade.

Today the Gran Canal is filled with modern transportation, but the gondolas still holds a valuable place in Venice’s history as one of the icons of the city. In the 17th and 18th century it is estimated that there were anywhere from eight to ten thousand gondolas that treaded through the canals of Venice. Today the art of the gondolier is being preserved in the historical center of Venice with only four hundred gondolas remaining. Taking a ride on a gondola gives you a different perspective of the city and takes you by places that you might have not been able to reach by foot.

Since we want you to enjoy, relax and take in the beauty of the sights around you no commentary from the guide will be given but your ears will be filled with a splendid serenade. Take this time to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!
