Sunset & Aperitivo Gondola Ride in Venice

Enjoy a sunset gondola ride
Enjoy a scenic sunset canal ride in an authentic Venetian Gondola. Paired with a bottle of prosecco as your traditional Italian Aperitivo, this is one of the most quintessential activities in Venice! You’ll explore the city's quieter, more evocative side canals, which offer a relaxed and romantic ambiance. Nothing is more magical than seeing Venice from the water, especially as the sun sinks into the horizon and the city begins to sparkle.

The gondola is as unique as its city of origin, with its crescent-shaped hulls and forcoles allowing gondoliers to position oars in different ways. The oar positioning is the secret to how these long and slender crafts navigate Venice’s narrow and intricate network of waterways.

You’ll start along the banks of the Grand Canal, cruising by some of the most popular sites in Venice, including its famed palaces and bridges. But you’ll also enjoy the smaller canals, discovering hidden mansions, quiet corners, and the authentic heart of the city.
