by Venice Tours Duration 30m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per traveller Price is AU$55

Glide peacefully among the grandeur and the centuries-old palazzos of Venice during a ride on a traditional gondola. Pass under elegant bridges, sail from the postcard-perfect waters of the Canal Grande into quieter waterways and live 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 an authentic Venetian gondola propelled by an experienced gondolier. Sit back, take in the city from its famous waterways as you are steered through the canals at the gentle and relaxing pace of the boat, and admire the play of the afternoon lights on the tiled facades of the palaces located along the channels.

During the itinerary you will admire Peggy Guggenheim collection, Basilica Santa Maria della Salute, Fenice Opera House, Punta della Dogana and at the end, you’ll enjoy a wonderful view of Piazza San Marco with its Palazzo Ducale!

You have the chance to listen to interesting facts about Venice and the history of its magnificent monuments and attractions directly from your mobile phone or any device. You just need to download our innovative app and the work is done! Every time you will get close to an attraction a registered digital guide will automatically tell you the most important information about it.
