Venice is famous for its Gondola rides. It is one of the hot spots for couples where they can enjoy a relaxing, romantic Gondola ride, with or without a guide. In addition to the amazing views seen in the ride, thanks to the colorful buildings and the calming water sites, there are packages that include concluding this perfect ride with a candlelit dinner. No wonder Venice is on the top lists for honeymoon destinations! For more privacy, there are options that provide a private ride, so the whole view can be yours alone. The rides are done day and night and include sightseeing options, so you choose one that suits your preference. There are also options for walking tours so you get the best of both activities. The Gondola ride can run for around 35-40 minutes while adding the walking tour could take over 2 hours.
Viator recommends Gondola rides, saying “Enjoy a walking tour of the city to discover its treasures nestled amid charming squares, bridges and narrow streets and then hop aboard a classic Venetian gondola boat. After exploring the Grand Canal and the smaller canals around the neighborhood of F[V]enice, soak up the charms of the romantic city while wandering through picturesque cobblestone alleyways and squares. Your knowledgeable guide will point out all the highlights of Venice from the area between Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square) to Rialto Bridge.” They say combining the ride with a walking tour “is a perfect way to get to know Venice, both as a must-do introductory city tour for new visitors, as well as for anyone interested in the city’s history. After meeting your expert guide near St. Mark’s Square, you’ll take a leisurely stroll through the streets of Venice, learning about its colorful past through its most characteristic and iconic attractions along with its lesser-known sites.”
