Shared Grand Canal Gondola Ride and Discover Venice
Enjoy a relaxing, shared trip on the most beautiful boat in the world, the gondola, for an unforgettable Venetian experience. Pass by Desdemon's House and Mozart's House as well as La Fenice Theater as you proceed along the canal. Once you reach the Salute Church and Punta della Dogana you will have a quick view of S. Giorgio's Island, Saint Mark's with its Bell Tower and Doge's Palace. After your gondola ride, get away from the crowded St Mark's Square and get lost in the maze of typical little streets. We will take you to a lovely area between Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge, passing by some special places: Teatro la Fenice, Scala del Bovolo, a unique spiral staircase, and Rialto Bridge.
