What You Can Expect

Venice Gondola Ride and Serenade

Enjoy a shared gondola ride and serenade on the Venetian waterways

You can walk around Venice. You could take a water taxi. But, really, there's only one way to get around La Serenissima, as this city of bridges and canals is nicknamed. And that way is by gondola. Decide to take one of four starting times when you book and then, on the day of the ride, head to the gondola pier at Piazza Santa Maria del Giglio in the center of Venice. 
After your arrival, hop on the shared six-seater gondola and sit back and let to your gondolier, clad in traditional clothing, cruise you through the wide and narrow, popular and offbeat canals through Venice. Each gondola holds six people and you will be part of a flotilla of eight gondolas floating together. See the city's main landmarks, including the Rialto Bridge, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, the Grand Canal and various centuries-old palaces. 
At one point during the ride, a singer will board one of the boats and begin crooning traditional Venetian tunes as you float along the canals. Sit back and let your ears take in the gorgeous songs and lose yourself in the sound and the look of Venice. 
After about 35 minutes of floating through this magical city, return to the pier where your gondola ride finishes.

I admit that we got lucky: the King and Queen seats on our gondola, along with the accordion player and singer too. A lovely, relaxing half an hour. Given how extortionately expensive gondola rides generally are, this tour was a good way of keeping the price reasonable. Would highly recommend.

We had an awesome time - very authentic thing to do in Venice at a reasonable price compared to trying to do this on your own. The best part was the tour went under the window of our VRBO rental so we go to enjoy the music all week long!

This tour is a must for anyone going to Venice. Sure, it may be cheesy, but being serenaded in a fleet of gondolas going through the canals of Venice is just a fun way to spend 35 minutes. I wish the tour would have been a full hour.

We enjoyed the gondola ride and the serenading was wonderful! All boats could hear the musicians. We spent some time and #34;floating and #34; in the grand canal all together, so all the boats could hear the music, and then went down some canals. I would and #39;ve liked to see more of the smaller canals though.
