Experience Venice as the locals have done for more than a thousand years through a gondola ride and continue the tour visiting a real masterpiece of Byzantine art, the golden Basilica!
A classic gondola ride is the perfect way to appreciate the beauty, charm and color of this unique city built on water. At the first part our staff will welcome you at the meeting point and give you boarding assistance on your Gondola (up to 6 people per Gondola). The tour begins in the Canal Grande in the Salute area and proceeds to the minor canals in the Fenice area. Your 30-minute ride ends at the starting point.
In the second part of the tour you will discover one of the world’s most majestic cathedrals. Together with a tour guide you can take a full tour of the Golden Basilica.
