What to expect

Experience an exclusive and romantic 30-minute private gondola ride on the canals of Venice. Discover the city from the water, as it was meant to be seen. See picturesque canals and enchanting Venetian architecture and share the ride with a loved one.

It is estimated that there were between 8 and 10 thousand gondolas operating on the canals of Venice during the 17th and 18th centuries. Today, there are just 400 that are still in active service.

Don't miss this opportunity to experience Venice from one of these iconic symbols of the city on a private 30-minute ride. Although most of the gondolas are used for touristic purposes, you'll be fascinated by the strong bond they continue to have with the history of Venice. Learn how each part of the boat has a symbolic meaning.

For example, the iron or bow has 5 or 6 'rebbi' (prongs) to symbolize the city’s 'sestieri' (districts). Made of iron to balance the weight of the gondolier, the 'S' shape evokes the flow of the Grand Canal.
