CLASSIC EVENING GONDOLA RIDE

ShoreTrips says...

The traditional gondola ride is unique to Venice. Add a singer serenade to make this an extra special event.

Enjoy a ride on a classic gondola--the unique experience for which Venice is famous. A gondola is a traditional Venetian rowing boat that has been the chief means of transportation within Venice for centuries. Although water taxis are now used on a day-to-day basis, gondolas still serve as traghetti (ferries) over major canals. If you are visiting Venice for the first time, you must experience a gondola ride!

Your private ride will be approximately 30-35 minutes in length. Your gondolier, who will stand facing the bow, will propel you through the magical waters of Venice by pushing a single oar, as gondoliers have done for centuries.

At the end of the tour, we suggest a short walk to the famous Florian Cafe right on San Marco Square, where you can find a great cup of coffee and a special dessert. You'll return to your ship via non-private shuttle (see Special Instructions).

To make this an extra special event, you may wish to be serenaded by a singer and guitarist or accordionist while floating down the the canals of Venice. Choose the singer serenade option when you book the tour.
