Great! 3.1/5 Expedia Guest Rating

Glide peacefully among the faded grandeur and centuries-old palazzos of Venice during a ride on a traditional gondola. Pass beneath elegant bridges, and drift from the postcard-perfect waters of the Grand Canal into quieter waterways as you absorb the inimitable atmosphere of the Queen of the Adriatic.

Experience the essence of Venice as you step from the walkways of the floating city into a graceful, authentic gondola manned by an experienced gondolier. Sit back and take in the city from the water as you're steered through the canals in a quiet rush, watching the play of the afternoon light on the tiled facades of the palaces that border the channels.

First introduced all the way back in the 11th century, these beautifully hand-crafted wooden rowboats were once the primary form of public transportation in this water-traced city. During their heyday in the 17th and 18th centuries, there were as many as 10,000 gondolas in the Venetian waterways. Today, that number is down to 400 in active service. Slip back into the past and admire the majesty of this enchanting, captivating city during your picturesque ride.
