Of course, the history of the gondola is deeply bounded to the one of Venice.

Considered one of the most beautiful and elegant boats on Earth, it is built through unique techniques and that each part of it also has symbolic meanings. For example, its multi-pronged ferro, or prow, does have five or six pettini, symbolic of the six sestieri in which Venice is divided into.

  • A must in Venice, unforgettable. Half an hour was enough to experience a gondola.

  • great experience.

  • Excellent experience in a Gongola, I would recommend to anyone.

  • Didn't go because of the weather

  • Great to see Venice from the water.
    Loved it.
    Friendly gondola man but it would have been better if he had told us a bit more about this fascinating city.

  • Amazing! Had to ride the gondola in Venice : Loved it!!!!!!

  • Although the gondola is shared, it is a must-do when youre in Venice. It was a little shambollic how it was organised, but when on board we really liked to see Venice sailing through the narrow canals.

  • This tour is okay, but really really touristy. I was with a group of 6 in the gondola which in itself isn't a problem, but that was after being with a group of 50 or so people who all walked to the gondolas together. It felt like getting on a slow moving ride at an amusement park. The gondolas let people off and then load the next people waiting in line. If you are going to spend the money on a Gondola ride I would recommend trying to find something more personal.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • A gondola ride is a must while in Venice and Viator had the best prices.
