What to expect
It is estimated that during the 17th and 18th centuries, there were between eight to ten thousand gondolas operating on the canals of Venice. Today, there are just 400 that are still in active service. Although most of the gondolas are used for touristic purposes, you'll be fascinated by the strong bond they continue to have with the history of Venice.
Don’t miss this opportunity to experience Venice off the beaten track: this 30-minute private gondola ride, which departs very close to the train station, will allow you to explore the most hidden and fasinating canals and monuments directly from the water.
Your gondoliere will take you to see some beautiful cultural treasures of the city, such as Palazzo della Torre, Palazzo Gaffaro, Chiesa di Santa Maria dei Carmini, Palazzo Zenobio and many others that are mostly uknown to tourists.
At the end of the ride, the gondola will take you back to Piazzale Roma (next to the train station) where you can continue, on foot, your discovery of one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
