About this activity

The gondola is one of the main symbols of Venice, as emblematic of the famous water city as mysterious in its origins. Not many people know that at the beginning this unique vessel was different from the one we can admire today, changing across time together with the city it is associated to. Of course, the history of the gondola is deeply bounded to the one of Venice.

Considered one of the most beautiful and elegant boats on Earth, it is built through unique techniques and that each part of it also has symbolic meanings. For example, its multi-pronged ferro, or prow, does have five or six pettini (combs), symbolic of the six sestieri (districts) in which Venice is divided into. The function of this part made of iron is to balance gondoliere’s weigh and it has an “S” shape evoking the flow of the Canal Grande.

Let yourself experience in first person the gondola through this tour. An enchanting and relaxing way to enjoy the colors, lights, sights, charm and beauty of Venice. You will admire elegant bank-side palaces, unique bridges and breath the charming and magic atmosphere that only a town built on water can give you.
