Excursion Itinerary: Gondola Ride - In The Afternoon


With this wonderful tour, you will not only enjoy gliding through Venice canals in a Gondola, but you will also have the opportunity to discover the city from a totally different perspective. Moving about in a gondola has always been the most common Venetian means of transport.

Your tour begins at the meeting point, Plaza de San Marcos Calle Larga Ascensione 1256, in front of the post office from where, at about 17:15 and you will board your gondola boat.

The tour lasts 35 minutes, with up to 6 people per gondola, through the Grand Canal, the Santa Maria della Salude area as well as through other canals in the Fenice area.

This is one of the experiences that you cannot miss in Venice. The success of this particular means of transport is due to its incomparable speed and maneuverability. What is more, its construction is more complex and takes almost a year to complete. The gondola is made up of 280 different pieces and 8 different types of wood. It is undoubtedly a true masterpiece of craftsmanship.

Despite its considerable length, the gondola is extremely manageable and can also be handled in small spaces, such as the endless narrow canals of Venice. The best part of this experience will be your personal gondolier, who will hypnotize you with his incredible balancing skills and dexterity. Gondoliers must wear black pants, dark shoes, and striped shirts. Almost all of them are men but now there are also women gondoliers.

The tour will come to an end upon your arrival at the Vallaresso Station in Dogana.

Greca Tip: Cruise along Venice's canals and watch Venice unfold before you from the element so abundant in this city: water!
