A gondola ride in a romantic Venice

Let the gondolier guide you up the Grand Canal and under the imposing arch of the Rialto Bridge or glide under the Bridge of Sighs to finally reach the spectacular Piazza San Marco. Stop to look at the church of San Giorgio Maggiore and then head towards the Punta della Dogana to admire the golden sphere and its statues, behind which the majestic Basilica della Salute peeps out, and beyond, the palace of the Peggy Guggenheim collection. Don’t forget to explore the intricate maze of canals that divide the city into many small islands, connected by bridges. During your gondola ride you will have the opportunity to sit on the elegant seats of an ancient boat once used by nobles and dukes to move around the city. The Gondola is a boat rich in history and tradition, a work of art created by shipwrights or squerarioli, who have handed down this art for centuries.
There are plenty of gondolas around the canals but if you book your romantic tour in advance you will get the best gondalier and route of your choice.
