Is there anything more typically Venetian than a Gondola? On this tour you'll discover the canals of the city from a different, romantic, and historical point of view.
The tour meets at the chosen time on Calle Larga Ascensione, near the famous St. Mark's Square, where we'll climb aboard our gondola, sailing the Venetian canals.
We'll explore the grand canal, home to some of the most picturesque buildings in the city. We'll make our way to the church of Santa María della Salute, and having admired it from the outside, we'll make our way around the smaller canals in the area which surround the Teatro de La Fenice.
