When people think of Venice, they often imagine a striped-shirt gondolier pushing along the boat as it floats past some fascinating historical buildings. But you won’t have to imagine it anymore as this Venice Gondola Tour gives you the perfect introduction to the city and its world-famous waterways.
Hop aboard your shared gondola as your local gondolier helps you along the canals across this charming 30-minute journey. You’ll begin your adventure near the starting point of the Grand Canal, which provides the ideal spot to admire many of the city’s most striking buildings from the water. Whether it’s the Church of La Salute, the Peggy Guggenheim Museum or the Accademia Bridge, this wonderful collection of structures provide a range of extraordinary stories and date back to when Venice was perhaps the richest city in the world.
The Grand Canal might be the most important route within the Floating City, but across this Venetian tour, you’ll also get to encounter many of the canals that tourists don’t get to see. As you traverse through the narrow waterways that divide the suburbs, reach out and touch the overhead bridges as we pass beneath three of Venice’s most beautiful.
Throughout this section of gondola tour, there are a number of astounding landmarks that provide a wealth of history, including the Palazzo Molin del Cuoridoro, the Palazzo Barbarigo Mocenigo, and the Palazzo Marin, a stunning Venetian residence that was home to the aristocrats from the 16th-century. Once you’ve completed your adventure through the quiet waterways of Venice, your gondolier will make their way back to your starting point and the conclusion of this tour.
The canals of Venice are an inspiring sight to behold – and something that every visitor to Italy simply has to experience at least once. Join us on this Venice Gondola Tour as we drift along the city’s celebrated canals and soak up all the delightful landmarks that make this place truly unique.
