Gondola Ride

We will be visiting Venice this summer and hope to take a gondola ride with our children. I'm aware of the prices but are there specific routes or can you request your own? We have visited Venice in the past & noticed bored looking passengers stuck in 'traffic jams' on the canals.

Just wondering where the best pick-up point is and which route offers the best experience? Are there some times in the day that are better than others?

1. Re: Gondola Ride

This is the official Tariff,


Gondoliers have pre planned routes as they can work out time wise how long takes to start and finish in the same place,

Back Canals are more interesting, if you hire a Gondola away from the busy tourist areas you will have a quieter ride,
