I really enjoyed this, especially for the money! The normal gondola ride varies between €60-80 for the same amount of time! (Talk about daytime robbery, eh?!) I shared the ride with 2 couples and another solo person. It was a short +/- 10min walk -with a guide of course- from the meeting point to the gondoliers. We started off on the Grand Canal, then navigated into the smaller canals, and then back to the starting point. I loved how all gondoliers seem to know each other, regardless of their placement. Our guy was chatting to every single one who we passed. A whole different world. I really loved the vibe.
We had a great time enjoying an Aperitivo while listing to all the informative stories about the city and watching the sun set. We definitely will come back and recommend Alessandro to all our friends visiting Venice.
Villa Valmarana is located downtown Vicenza on an off street. It was a really nice day trip to stay local for the weekend. They also have a Cafe and you can set onside and enjoy the view.
The pick up location and app are really easy to use. Our gondilier was so nice and friendly gave a us great short tour of the city. Was exactly what we were looking for.
It was an amazing tour with many interisting information about Venice given by the gondoliere. Thanks so much.
