Full description

With our private 45-minute gondola ride you can book a gondola all for yourself, to enjoy the unforgettable experience of a gondola ride with the people you have chosen: on your own or with someone special, your friends or your family, up to a maximum of five people.

The ride lasts 45 minutes, more than other gondola tours, which usually last about 30 minutes: you will have more time to take in plenty of picturesque views and to relish the most authentic atmosphere of Venice!

The ticket includes the advance booking fee: you will not have to queue, get away with on the sport bargaining and save time.


Itinerary

Our Venice private gondola ride 45 minutes starts near the famous Hotel Bauer, in Campo San Moisè, a few steps from St Mark’s Square. You will sail from the Grand Canal along the minor inner canals until you reach Rialto, where you will immerse yourself in the lively comings and goings of boats that travel the canals around it every day!

You will see some of the most famous buildings in Venice parade in front of you: the Gran Teatro 'La Fenice', with its scenic tower, destroyed by a devastating fire in 1996, but today faithfully rebuilt; Basilica della Salute, a majestic Baroque church that offers different perspective views as the observation point changes; Palazzo Contarini Fasan, an elegant Gothic-style building with white openwork balconies.

You will access the evocative smaller canals, where you will discover a lesser-known side to Venice, and you will be lulled by the quiet swaying of the gondola. During the 45 minutes’ navigation you will have plenty of time to see unique glimpses and views of the water that cannot be enjoyed during an out-of-the-box stroll along Venice’s streets.

The disembarkation point is expected to be at the same gondola station of departure, near the Hotel Bauer.
