Why this Event?

A classic Gondola ride is the perfect way to appreciate the beauty, charm and colour of this unique city built on water. This traditional Venetian mode of transport, departs from San Moise square, where you will be invited to relax aboard this historic vessel. Admire Venice from this amazing point of view, witness its magnificent architecture, and whilst gliding under its bridges, discover secret entrances to the elegant palaces and hidden corners of the city. This is not a guided tour - words are not required to embrace the beauty of seeing Venice from the water.

You will be assisted in boarding the Gondola, one of the most recognized symbols of Venice - up to 6 people per Gondola- at the landing stage of San Moisè. Experience how the locals were transported by these beautiful black, elegant rowing boats, throughout history. The Gondola originally built to navigate the canals of this unique city and still hand built in same way today, is recognized world-wide. With less than 500 Gondolas and Gondoliers remaining, it is an experience that you must not miss. You can be expected to admire the minor canals in the heart of Venice, soaking up the atmosphere of days gone-by, you will cover a short stretch of the Grand Canal, the most famous canal in the world, and then back through the narrow waterways return to the starting point in this 30 minute ride. Feel part of an ancient Venetian tradition and experience Venice from the water!

This 30 minute tour concludes in Campo San Moisè, a short walk from Saint Mark’s Square.

This was so much easier than having to find parking and navigate the memorials on our own. We had plenty of time to leave the bus and explore the memorials up close.

Awesome tour. Our tour guide Al was very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure that were able to really enjoy the memorials. There are so many tour bus options, I'm happy that I chose Gray Line Tours!

My daughter and I went on the memorial/monument tour. Big Al was our tour guide and did an awesome job! We went to DC for a week and this was our favorite tour! We got to see so much in such a short amount of time! Would recommend and would do it again!

Tour was cancelled. Given vouchers to Big Bus Tour. Their bus broke down and we walked most of the tour. Not what I was expecting.
