moving around Venice in a gondola

Classic Gondola Services

discover the magic of Venice from a unique perspective: the water

You can’t really say you’ve visited Venice without having taken a gondola ride, the city’s means of transport par excellence.

Are you ready to be lulled by the rocking of the waters and emerged in the magic that is Venice?

Symbol of elegance, tradition and discovery, the gondola will allow you to admire majestic architectural masterpieces overlooking the water and beautiful views, from an unprecedented view.

We operate every day with two types of tours to meet all needs with original and custom itineraries, both for private customers and for agencies.
