- Spectacular views along the city’s Grand Canal
Absolutely amazing experience! Booking with Tinggly was fast and easy. Can not recommend it enough!!!
The gondola ride was disappointing. It lasted a bare 30 minutes of which 10 were spent in gondola gridlock waiting for others to load and disembark. Most of the ride was spent in narrow canals between brick walls with only two point of history mentioned. When we did get into open water we barely made any headway at all while the gondoliers were busy chatting amongst themselves. Would not do it again.
Beginning in front of the 17th century Basilica Santa Maria della Salute, at the entrance to the Grand Canal, this 40-minute voyage along the city’s historic waterways is the ultimate Venice experience. You’ll pass many of the city’s well-known landmarks, beautiful architecture dating from the 13th century onwards, including the Palazzo Barbaro, the Ca’ d’Oro, and the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, home to the Guggenheim collection. Majestic palace and gently fading houses form a delightful backdrop to this most romantic of journeys.
As you drift slowly beneath bridges, taking in the sights and sounds of Venice, you’ll be serenaded by your gondolier with traditional Italian songs. Tinggly recommend bringing along a blanket on cold days, and a chilled bottle of champagne, to make the experience even more special.
