What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Venice Gondola Ride with Serenade

Private Gondola Serenade on the Canals of Venice

Head to the Hotel Bauer gondola stop in central Venice either during the day or at night – whatever time suits you best – and then hop aboard your elegant gondola boat. With just your group (2-4 people maximum) on board, plus your own gondolier, your boat will glide away into the waters of the Grand Canal.

Once the main form of transport around the beautiful water-logged city of Venice, gondolas have more or less been replaced by the vaporetti (water buses) for getting quickly around. But nothing beats a pleasant glide around Venice by traditional gondola boat, passing the city’s Gothic palazzos and elegant bridges at a gentle pace.

Look out at the hustle and bustle of the ancient Grand Canal, seeing vaporetti, water taxis and other gondolas passing by, and then cruise along some of the quieter canals that act as side streets through the city. Sit back and relax as your gondolier serenades you with a song, and soak up the romantic atmosphere of Venice from the canals.

After 35 minutes out on the water, glide back to the start point where your gondola ride finishes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

This was a fantastic tour. My girlfriend and I booked this in addition to the tour that we were a part of and with two musicians and over a half of an hour through the canals it was just stunning.

I can't put into words how good this ride was. My wife and I were simply expecting the gondolier to be singing while traveling the canals. To our very pleasant surprise, we boarded the gondola with an accordion player and soprano. When she began to sing, we were simply in awe. Our private show was enjoyed by the many people walking the bridges of Venice, as well...but we felt as if this was our own private concert. A experience that will last in our memories forever!
