Likely to Sell-out! Serenaded gondola rides on the canals of Venice regularly sell out weeks in advance. Book ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
Settle into your comfortable seat aboard a six-person, 36-foot (11-meter) gondola and be captivated by the glamour and elegance of Venice as you glide through the city's canals!
Departing in the afternoon or evening, drift along the Grand Canal and watch as the eye-catching palaces and churches, which line the famous channel, pass by. Your licensed gondolier wearing classic black pants and striped shirt will stand and expertly row with one oar through the busy watercourse throughout your 35-minute ride.
A musician and a singer will also stand on board one of the boats in your flotilla to accompany your romantic journey with music and a serenade.
Admire other ornately decorated gondolas along the Grand Canal and soak up the quiet atmosphere as you float through Venices less crowded, narrow inner canals.
At the end of the gondola ride, disembark at Campo Santa Maria del Giglio, one of the most famous piazzas (squares) in Venice.
From here, follow directions to Hostaria Ai Coristi Restaurant, located behind San Fantin Church near La Fenice Theater, for a two-course meal (choice fish or meat dishes), with a glass of house wine, water, and coffee.
Please note that you can combine the 3:30 pm tour with your choice of lunch (to be taken before the gondola serenade between noon and 3 pm) or with dinner (to be taken between 7 pm and 9 pm).
