Full description
The best perspective to admire Venice is from the water, and a gondola is the most traditional and unique way to do this. Discover the city throughout a 45-minute tour, experiencing how Venetians moved from one district to another in the past. Your gondola journey begins a few steps away from St. Mark's Square, before crossing hidden inner canals which will allow you to admire views which go unnoticed to the eye when walking through the city center. This special ride will also let you marvel at the majestic Rialto Bridge, which is one of the most ancient and famous bridges in Venice. At the conclusion of your ride, return back to St. Mark's Square to disembark your vessel and bid your gondolier farewell.

El paseo en góndola fue genial, no se me hizo ni corto ni largo, así que la duración perfecta. Fue fácil encontrar el lugar de inicio del recorrido. Lo que menos me gustó fue que el gondolero no habló absolutamente nada durante todo el viaje, ni para explicar nada de lo que veíamos ni para cantar algo (no todos los gondoleros cantan o te explican las cosas pero nos cruzábamos con varios que sí lo hacían). En general, me gustó mucho la experiencia y si el gondolero hubiera puesto un poco más de su parte hubiera sido perfecta!

It was actually really nice and the host was super friendly but it was a little expensive compared to all other gondola services in Venice
