Skip the lines and choose your preferred time for a Venice gondola ride by booking this tour in advance. During your 30-minute ride, you’ll admire the city’s historic sights and romantic bridges from the water. Escape the bustle of tourist areas as you glide through the quieter canals, and see parts of the city you wouldn’t on a walking tour.
What to Expect
Meet your gondolier at Calle Larga Ascensione at your pre-selected departure point. You’ll head to the front of the tourist line and step right into your gondola for an unforgettable tour of Venice. Sit back and enjoy the city from the water as your gondolier steers you peacefully through the canals.

During your 30-minute journey, you’ll leave the bustle of the Grand Canal behind, gliding through some of Venice’s quieter and narrower canals. Pass under ancient bridges and admire architectural masterpieces such as the Basilica della Salute and La Fenice, the most famous opera house in Venice. Your tour ends back at your departure point.

Find a ride in a quieter back canal

We didn't book a gondola ride in advance. We wandered around for a while exploring the back streets and bridges and just stumbled upon a gondolier waiting for customers. No queue. Standard price of 80 euro and an agreed time of 30 minutes. It was...More
