Full description
With music filling the air and the wonderful Baroque buildings reflected in the waters, a Gondola ride is truly the best way to experience the magical city of Venice. This 30-minute Gondola ride especially for your group will take you along the enchanting canals of Venice accompanied by traditional music and songs. Board the distinctive Gondola and cruise along some of Venice’s backstreets as well as the Grand Canal. During the Gondola ride, a singer will board one of the boats and croon traditional Venetian numbers as you drift on the canal. The Grand Canal has been called ‘the finest street in the world”. Dressed in traditional costume, your gondolier will row you along the canals and you will see a boulevard of baroque palazzo dating from the 12th to the 18th century. Some of the major highlights that you will pass are Santa Maria della Salute church, Teatro la Fenice, Accademia bridge, Peggy Guggenheim, Mozart's home and more.
