- 1-hour Venice gondola ride, in a small group of six people maximum
- Enjoy a hassle-free Venetian gondola experience by booking ahead
- See top Venice attractions as you glide: Piazza San Marco, Rialto Bridge and the Fenice Theatre
- Relax as you're punted through the water by a master gondolier
In your small group of no more than six people, glide gracefully through the water with a master gondolier as your guide. The waters of Venice have different charms and appeals, and you'll see the varying facets of this unique city during your tour. Float through the busy waters of the vast Grand Canal before drifting along the quieter, narrower canals of Sestriere San Marco.
Sights you are sure to see during your 1-hour gondola tour include the beautiful Rialto Bridge with its smooth marble facade, the busy Venice markets and the house where Mozart reportedly stayed during visits to the Carnival of Venice. Your expert gondolier guide will also point out the famous Fenice Theatre, translated as "Theater of the Phoenix." Like its namesake, this eye-catching building is said to have risen from the ashes after being burned down several times during its unlucky history. Strain your ears as you pass, and you may hear the opera singers rehearsing inside!
Your 1-hour gondola ride ends near Piazza San Marco, the popular square shadowed by historic buildings and fine architecture.

This was truly an Awesome experience. The local tour operator was very professional and really friendly. since we were just three people for this tour, it was very personalized and like a private tour. I couldn't have asked for a more peaceful way of booking a Gondola ride. Otherwise imagine bargaining there with the gondoliers!. Good job Viator and the local tour operator!. The Gondolier was very friendly as well and patiently answered so many of my questions. It was really a fabulous experience. Note, I was not even asked for any extra tips!. Thoroughly professional!. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
