Tour Highlights

A Venice Gondola Tour is one of the quintessential things to do when visiting Venice. Take advantage of this special offer package and enjoy a Venice Gondola Tour and the excellent Original Venice Walking Tour at one low price.


Enjoy a relaxing 2 hour guided walk away from the main tourist sites and crowds. We make our way through the labyrinth of alleyways towards the famous Opera house La Fenice which burned down and has now been rebuilt to its original glory, then a quiet walk towards Palazzo Fortuny once known as Palace of the Orpheans, we will see the ornate Bovolo spiral staircase (known as ‘of the snail’) tucked away in a tiny courtyard, then onto a view of Rialto bridge and Grand Canal.

Discover the Hunch-back of Rialto, Marco Polo’s house and much more. Take advantage of our expert guides, and learn about the Venetian dialect. Hear the history of this enchanting city from our local guides.

Discover the extraordinary architectural masterpieces and why they were built that way, learn how Venice lost out on the trade routes when the New World was discovered, leaving Venice medieval forever. Strolling along the narrow streets, “Calle” to encounter hidden away treasures.

You then continue on to our enchanting gondola ride and glide through centuries of history, allowing yourself to be captivated by the glamour and elegance of the Venetian Palazzi. The perfect way to appreciate the beauty, charm and colour of this unique city built on water, you will be enthralled by what surrounds you.

Relax and enjoy the romantic tranquillity of the Serenissima, unlock the secrets of Venice and her intriguing labyrinth of canals. Feel part of an ancient Venetian tradition and experience Venice as the locals have for more than a thousand years. Once upon a time the most noble and wealthy of families would have travelled around by gondola - the slightly eccentric Peggy Guggenheim was the last person to have her own private gondola in the 1960's.

On this unique exploration of the Venetian canals, unwind and relax into the gentle rhythms and movements of the Grand Canal, appreciating the skill involved in steering the gondola through the intricate waterways of the city. As you sit back and take in the views, you will inevitably become involved in the friendly banter of the gondoliers - as much a part of Venetian culture as the gondola itself! This charming tour will take you one step closer to the romantic facades of Venice and will enable you to understand what it was to be truly Venetian.

Important Note:

  • Please arrive at the meeting point 10 minutes prior to departure.
