What You Can Expect

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, 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.

Enjoyed the walking tour very much. We had a very knowledgeable guide who did a fantastic job of describing Venice - I especially enjoyed all of the smaller details she was able to share with us.

The line for the gondola ride was incredibly long, but the ride itself was very enjoyable. Also, be aware the gondola ride is with 6 people, not a private ride.

Great tour and the tour guide was really friendly and had great info to share. The gondola ride wasn't anything fancy but was still nice. We were day on a day trip and got a lot of info on the city.

Excellent tour! It was great hearing the history of Venice from our guide. The Gondola Ride was lovely too, though it was getting dark by 5 pm, after the walking tour. Take that into consideration when booking in the winter months.
