Sharing a Gondola in Venice : an authentic experience on a budget

If you are on a budget but don’t want to miss out on an authentic gondola ride experience, we recommend that you opt for our gondola tour shared with other few people. There will be maximum 6 people on the tour, hence it will still be a comfortable and pleasant experience.

The host for this activity will of course be our gondolier, traditionally dressed with the classic blue and white outfit. He will be the one rowing the gondola and talking to you about the skills required to be a professional gondolier. He will also explain the technique to row the Venetian way and the reason why you use only one oar! While listening, you will be able to relax on the characteristic red velvet armchairs decorated with golden drapery. Float gently along at the relaxed pace of the gondola and enjoy the sights and sounds of Venice!.
