What to expect

Experience the 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 by a romantic serenade.

Today the Grand Canal is filled with modern transportation, but the gondolas still hold 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 moved along the canals of Venice. Today the art of the gondolier is 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. To guarantee you maximum fun and relaxation, during the gondola ride there is no guide, but a musician who will thrill you with splendid serenades. Take this time to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride!
