What to expect

It is estimated that there were eight to ten thousand gondolas operating on the canals of Venice during the 17th and 18th-centuries. Today, there are just 400 that are still in active service. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience Venice by night on a private 30-minute gondola ride.

Although most of the gondolas are used for tourist purposes, you'll be fascinated by the strong bond they continue to have with the history of Venice.

Learn how each part of the boat has symbolic meanings. For example, the iron or bow has 5 or 6 rebbi (prongs) to symbolize the city’s sestieri (districts). Made of iron to balance the weight of the gondolier, the 'S' shape evokes the flow of the Grand Canal.
