Itinerary

Greet your guide at a designated meeting point at the departure time selected at checkout. Step aboard a traditional Venetian gondola and set out along Rio della Madonnetta, passing the canalside neighborhoods of Santa Croce and San Polo.

Your private guide provides historical and cultural commentary as you enjoy unobstructed views of Ponte dell’Accademia and the Gothic features of the Ca' d'Oro (Palazzo Santa Sofia), and glide beneath the world-famous Rialto Bridge (Ponte di Rialto).

After the ride, your gondola returns to your original departure point.
