About the Tour
After meeting your group near the Rialto Bridge, you'll settle into the seat of a traditional Venetian gondola. These narrow-hulled boats with their graceful curving prows have plied the city's canals for centuries, propelled by skillful gondoliers who push them along with single long oars. Yours will spend a half-hour riding along the Grand Canal—lined on both sides with stately palazzos and churches—and also a few smaller canals, where you'll see modern-day residents and shopkeepers going about their business. You'll end your jaunt with a deeper appreciation of the Floating City.
What We Love About This Tour
- Floating past the graceful palazzos along the Grand Canal, whose façades can only be seen from the water
- Photographing iconic structures like the Rialto Bridge from a unique watery perspective
- Getting a close-up look at the special navigation skill of Venetian gondoliers
