Full description

This private night gondola ride in Venice lasts 40 minutes, a little longer than the standard gondola rides, and lets you discover the magical atmosphere of Venice by night, with the silence of its streets and the play of the reflections of lights on the water surface.

You’ll have a gondola all to yourself, which you can share with whoever you want: someone special, your friends or family, up to a maximum of five people. It guarantees all the intimacy you need to appreciate the authenticity of this experience, which uncovers Venice after the crowds of tourists have left and Venetians reclaim their city.

The ticket includes the right to book in advance: you save time and avoid long negotiations on the spot.


You will leave from the gondola stop of Hotel Bauer, just a few steps from St Mark’s Square, and then continue on an itinerary away from the most crowded routes. You will cross more popular places, such as the Rialto area and the Grand Canal, but you will also enter less visited areas where you will savor the true nature of Venice, made even more surreal by the sounds and colors of the evening.

Glide silently on the water and let yourself be lulled by the gentle sway of the gondola, for a relaxing and unforgettable experience!

If you go to Venice the gondola ride is a must do... but if you enjoy it in the evening is something special! Venice kissed by the light of sunset  becomes even more magical!

'You know you just have to do it!'

This gondola ride by night was beyond our expectations, we were very satisfied! We passed under numerous bridges, down narrow canals included and the beautiful Canal Grande, perfect for taking beautiful photos! Recommended for anyone.


Friendly gondolier & relax
