Venice: Shared Gondola Ride Across the Grand Canal
- Duration: 30 minutes
I really enjoyed this, especially for the money! The normal gondola ride varies between €60-80 for the same amount of time! (Talk about daytime robbery, eh?!) I shared the ride with 2 couples and another solo person. It was a short +/- 10min walk -with a guide of course- from the meeting point to the gondoliers. We started off on the Grand Canal, then navigated into the smaller canals, and then back to the starting point. I loved how all gondoliers seem to know each other, regardless of their placement. Our guy was chatting to every single one who we passed. A whole different world. I really loved the vibe.
Most of the staff here were very rude. Maybe its just the Italians but my husband and I were disappointed in how we were treated when we just asked a question. The gondola ride was awesome but I already had a bad taste before the ride wit the rudeness of the staff.
Very fun experience and a good way to save on a gondola-especially if you’re alone! I was able to have a fun experience and still get my picture taken despite traveling solo!
The pick up location and app are really easy to use. Our gondilier was so nice and friendly gave a us great short tour of the city. Was exactly what we were looking for.
Good value if there is only one of you. I personally for two or more would hire the whole Gondola. This one can get a little crowded with 6 people on.
