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.

Next, get on the public boat number 1, the slower boat used by venetians to move around the city, put your earphones and discover the Grand Canal: the richest waterways of the world! Grand Canal is the main water-road of Venice, 4 km long and with more than 200 magnificent buildings belonged to the Venetian nobles and the Doges. Venetian aristocrats used them as showrooms of their products and activities. Ships came from all over the world to deposit their exotic products in front of these magnificent buildings.

During this incredible experience the boat will pass under the oldest bridge of Venice: Rialto.

Your personal audio-guide will escort through the itinerary finding out about the endless history of Venice and many curiosities about its splendid attractions!
