Venice is a city of unique tourist attractions and places with a special atmosphere and history. Feel the local romantic atmosphere by using traditional gondola rides.

A little distance from St. Mark's Square, near the Hotel Bauer, your gondola ride begins. Navigate the Grand Canal before turning off onto secret inner canals to see sights that are hidden from view when strolling through the city's core.

Admire the stunning architecture of Rialto Bridge, which is one of the most interesting ancient sights in Venice. You will not be left indifferent after visiting famous buildings, like the tragically destroyed Gran Teatro 'La Fenice', the wonderful Basilica della Salute, and the grand Palazzo Contarini Fasan, with Gothic architecture.

We spontaneously wanted to postpone the trip due to the rain, which we were verbally assured. Due to the high price, we were initially worried that this promise would not be kept and that we would be left without a trip and money. But everything worked out great, including customer service with the hotline. Therefore very satisfied, absolutely serious. Sure, not cheap, but you can definitely treat yourself to a trip to Venice! The driver spoke great English and was very friendly!

This trip takes you through a few small canals onto the main canal and then back in. It’s just a small round trip. We booked 45 min but I think it was the same route as 30min. Just slower. No passing of the Rialto bridge in this tour. We paid 175 euro, which is probably way too much. Better ask around when you are there. For a better price and better route.
