Tour Description

Although Venice is fascinating no matter how you explore the city, it’s extra special to discover the famous sights and attractions, and some not so famous ones, from the city’s iconic canals.

Keep it Simple with City Wonders

All you have to do is book your ticket. We take care of the rest. Pick the tour that fits best with your schedule and then hop onto your gondola. Official, local gondoliers captain the boat for a guaranteed authentic experience. You might even be lucky enough to be serenaded!

Discover the Lively Grand Canal by Gondola

Our Gondola Ride Experience begins on Venice’s main thoroughfare, the Grand Canal, and takes you down the quieter, off-the-beaten-track canals to discover beautiful views of Venice from the water.

You’ll see the famous 17th-century Baroque church, the Santa Maria della Salute Church, as we set sail down the Grand Canal. This church was built by survivors of the plague as a symbol of gratitude to God for sparing their lives.

Relax as you Gently Uncover Venice's History

Settle back as we turn into the quieter waterways, and the noise of the crowded streets of Venice fades into the distance. Here, more of the city’s many treasures will reveal themselves to you. You’ll see the Fenice Opera House and Theater, the stunning Church of San Moisè, Mozart’s home, and the imposing, gothic Bauer Palace.

As we return to the Gondola Station, you’ll feel anything but indifferent. In fact, Venice will have captured your heart for a lifetime.
