What to expect

Explore the beauties of Venice from an exclusive point of view: its canals!

Your private gondola ride will start from Bacino Orseolo, right in front of famous Hard Rock Cafè and just behind Saint Mark’s Square, following smaller but unbelievably beautiful secondary canals such as Rio dei Barcaioli where the home where Mozart lived is located, and Rio dell’Ovo to reach the Grand Canal.

From here, to your right you will enjoy the spectacular view of the Rialto Bridge from the water, and to your left imposing palazzi such as Ca’ Farsetti, seat of the municipal government, and Palazzo Grimani, the largest building overlooking the Grand Canal and which now hosts the Court of Appeals.

The tour will continue down Rio San Luca where it passes Palazzo Manin, the residence of the last doge of Venice, Ludovico Manin, and today the Bank of Italy’s Regional headquarters building, before returning to end again at Bacino Orseolo.
