Discover Venice Walking Tour & Shared Gondola Ride

by Park Viaggi Duration 2h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is £49

Soak up all of Venice's atmospheric charm with a tour that lets you explore this enchanting floating city by land and by canal. Climb on board a traditional gondola for the only-in-Venice experience of cruising the centuries-old waterways, and then scope out the city's distinctive architecture and iconic landmarks on foot.

Start your adventure on the water, taking a seat on a classic Venetian gondola and watching the world pass by as you drift leisurely through narrow canals, beneath arched bridges, and past the water-level terraces of Renaissance-era palaces. Pass through the serene waters of the Grand Canal, admire the colourful facades of elegant homes, and snap photos with your striped shirt-sporting gondolier.

Next, step out of the boat and set off with a guide to seek out the hidden attractions and must-see sights tucked within Venice's labyrinth of narrow lanes and open squares. Stand outside of the Teatro La Fenice, where bel canto era composers like Verdi, Rossini, Bellini, and Donizetti premiered celebrated operas in the 19th century. Admire the extraordinary multi-arched spiral staircase on the Renaissance Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo, and stroll across the elegant Rialto Bridge—the oldest bridge spanning the Grand Canal. Along the way, listen as your guide shares little-known facts, legends, and stories about this gloriously romantic city on a lagoon.

The guide was really knowledgeable and even after we had been on numerous tours of Venice we were told new prices of information. Some great tips for things to do too. Would definitely recommend it.
