Venice Walking Tour and Gondola Ride

Enjoy a Gondola Ride in Venice!

This 2-hour walking tour of Venice provides an excellent introduction to the city’s highlights and history, plus the classic Venetian experience of riding in a gondola. Meet your guide near St Mark’s Square, where you’ll get an insider’s overview of world-famous attractions like St Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace. 

Wander through the surrounding neighborhood as your guide illuminates the history of Venice as a maritime superpower and incubator of Renaissance art. Admire iconic Venetian landmarks such as the Teatro la Fenice opera house, the Rialto Bridge and the mysterious spiral staircase of Scala del Bovolo. The specific tour itinerary may vary by day, as there is so much to see!

After exploring the city’s romantic streets by foot, climb aboard a traditional gondola boat for a romantic ride along the city’s famous canals. Navigated by a friendly gondolier, cruise by spectacular historic structures along the Grand Canal and float down smaller watery ways in the Fenice neighborhood. After a 35-minute ride, step back on solid ground at the Dogana/Valaresso Station in central Venice.

Please note: The walking tour does not include entry to the monuments.

Great! One thing however, our guide kept showing us gardens and tries. I understand that it is a rarety in venice, but not for most countries - it would have been nicer if she concentrated more on famous people's homes and history.

interesting and informative walking tour and entertaining gondolier ride. Be prepared to share your Gondola with other people, we didn't mind as there is only six to a boat the 2 of us shared with a lovely group of Americans.
