Full description

Treat yourself to the magic of the Venice Carnival ... on a gondola! Don an elegant historical dress, a Carnival costume of your choice, or even just a beautiful mask, and get ready to experience unique emotions!

While sipping a glass of Prosecco you will admire a new side to Venice from the water, while a professional photographer will immortalize the best moments with wonderful shots you will take home with you at the end of the tour.

One of the very icons of Venice, the gondola is also one of the best ways to discover the city: meandering through the canals of the historic center allows you to see out-of-sight views and details visible only from the water ... No trip to Venice can be considered complete without a gondola ride: the different perspective of the palaces and churches will allow you to admire the city under an awe-inspiring new light!

Specially designed for the Carnival period, this new tour will offer you the chance to fully immerse yourself in the lively atmosphere of one of the most famous Venetian celebrations. You can dress up as rich aristocrats of the past - if you do not own period clothes, no problem! You can rent a Carnival dress online and collect it directly in Venice - or wear another dress, or just a mask, of your choice ... Immerse yourself in the role of the character you will be playing and let the photographer take some great photos. At the end of the tour you will take them home with you in digital format as a memento of this original experience!

The route of the gondola tour will allow you to admire some of the most evocative areas of the city on water ... First of all, the Grand Canal, the buzzing waterway of Venice on whose shores are some of the most beautiful historical buildings of the Serenissima! On the way you will see famous buildings such as Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, home of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and Palazzo Grassi and the Accademia Bridge. After the Grand Canal, it will be the turn of the picturesque minor canals and their undeniable yesteryear atmosphere, where dreams and reality merge into highly emotional glimpses.

You will share this fascinating experience with the people of your choice: friends, family or your sweetheart... The gondola is private and can accommodate up to 5 people! The photographer will come onboard with you and accompany you for the entire duration of the gondola ride.

What are you waiting for? Book online your Carnival gondola and enjoy a unique experience while sipping a glass of Prosecco!
