See the incredible city of Venice from a new perspective! With our private gondola ride along the Grand Canal, you will admire some of the jewels of Venetian architecture and pass under the famous Rialto Bridge. Starting from Bacino Orseolo, located behind St Mark's Square, our gondolier will guide you along the canals on an exciting tour of 30 or 60 minutes.

On the 30-minute tour, we will start by navigating the small canals of the centre, so you can totally immerse yourself in the romantic atmosphere of Venice. We will then cruise along Rio dei Barcaroli, where Mozart's house is located, and Rio dell'Ovo, until we reach the Grand Canal, where we will pass only briefly. You will see the Rialto Bridge, a marvel of medieval engineering, and important palaces such as Ca' Farsetti, seat of the city hall, and Palazzo Grimani, seat of the Court of Appeal. We will then continue to Rio San Luca, where you can admire Palazzo Manin, residence of the last Doge of Venice Ludovico Manin, before returning to the starting point and ending the tour.

If you choose the 60-minute tour, you will see Mozart's house in Rio dei Barcaroli, and then fully appreciate the beauty of the Grand Canal. We will then pass under the Rialto Bridge and then continue to the equally famous Rialto Market, where you can still feel the true Venetian atmosphere. On this tour, you will see some of the most beautiful Venetian buildings, such as Ca' Farsetti, Palazzo Grimani, and Palazzo Manin, and admire the unique beauty of this city from the comfort of a traditional gondola.

If you wish, you can accompany your tour with a duo of musicians, who will delight you with an Italian-style serenade.
