Exploring Grand Canal by Private Gondola Ride

Take a private ride in a gondola to experience the romance of Venice. See historic palaces and bridges from the water as you travel down the Grand Canal and some of the city's smaller waterways. On a traditional gondola for up to six people, you can experience the romance of Venice in a more intimate setting that is only for your group. Pick a time that works best for you to leave the Campo San Luca. Gondola rides are available both during the day and at night, when you can admire the illuminated monuments. To get a look at some of the historic buildings from the water, take a trip along the renowned Grand Canal.

You can experience the romance of Venice being carried on a traditional gondola for up to six people, in a more intimate setting that is only for your group.

Pick a time that works best for you to leave the Campo San Luca. Gondola rides are available both during the day and at night, when you can admire the illuminated monuments. To get a look at some of the historic buildings from the water, take a trip along the renowned Grand Canal.

You can get away from the crowds of tourists by going down some of the smaller canals. Your gondolier will gently guide you through the city's historic center aboard the city's most traditional mode of transportation as you pass the Gothic façades of palazzos. Your amazing gondola ride will come to an end as you glide back to the starting point.

Important to know

  • The duration of the gondola ride depends on the discretion of the Gondolier
  • The ride might last less than 30 minutes, it depends on how busy the canals are
We enjoyed the gondol ride through Venice with our gondolier who was Nice to tell us about the history and tips on where to eat, which was a great Italian restaurant.

Very smooth system. They also kept our baby strollers at safe place and returned us back at the end of the ride.

We weren't sure about doing this ride but really pleased that we did. We booked and paid for it online earlier in the day (about £100), went to the travel office in Campo san Luca at the allotted time, where we were issued with a voucher which we took to Bacino Orseolo to give to any of the gondoliers there. Three of us enjoyed having a gondola to ourselves (although we probably could have arranged a ride for just 3 of us on the spot earlier in the day at one of the quieter gondola stations), and booked for 6pm so we enjoyed sunset on the Grand Canal. The gondolier hardly spoke to us but that was fine, we just enjoyed the sights from the water.

The view is incredible. Th gondola itself was nice. The gentleman maneuvering the gondola was nice but did not speak much besides telling us his name. Next time I would opt for a gondola ride that specifically states conversation or music or at least pointing things out is included.

The gondola ride itself was fine.. good value for the money. However the gondola ‘driver’ didn’t say a thing.. was on his phone the entire ride and when asked a question he snapped an answer and went back to his phone. We stopped trying to making convo and just chatted with each other. Our friends in another gondola had a very pleasant driver from the same company. So it really depends on who you get. Overall I would recommend.

After finding the ticket office the lady checked us in then pointed out where to find the gondola. After asking around just a bit we found it and enjoyed the ride.
