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.

This tour was an "off the beaten path " tour. Our guide spoke excellent English and took us down some quiet streets and shared the history of venice with us. It was very crowded in Venice while we were there and I liked that she got us out of the high traffic areas and onto some quieter streets. The gondola ride was also very nice.

Great value for the money. Our tour guide was great, very informative and entertaining. I loved that he used pictures to help get his points across. The shared gondola ride was great too;It was just enough to get the full experience.

Amazing tour. We had a lovely time walking around and seeing different parts of Venice. This was our second time visiting Venice and we were able to gain different information on this tour form the last one we did, so was definitely worth it. The gondola ride was very nice also and worth adding to the tour.

We loved our walking tour and gondola ride in Venice. Marco our guide was excellent - very knowledgeable and very funny, which made it very enjoyable! The walking tour went for almost 1.5 hours before we enjoyed our gondola ride. Although it was a shared ride, it was beautiful and we felt it was very good value for money considering how expensive gondola rides can be! Would definitely recommend.
