Tour Itinerary:

After meeting your group, you'll settle into the seat of a traditional Venetian gondola. These narrow-hulled boats with their graceful curving prows have plied the city's canals for centuries, propelled by skillful gondoliers who push them along with single long oars. Yours will spend a half-hour riding along the Grand Canal, lined on both sides with stately palazzos and churches, and also a few smaller canals, where you'll see modern-day residents and shopkeepers going about their business. You'll end your jaunt with a deeper appreciation of the Floating City. 

Experience Duration: Approx. 35 minutes
