Discovering Venice from the Grand Canal

PRIVATE GONDOLA RIDE

Views: 126

Meet your private assistant at your hotel and get ready to embark on a journey back in time. Il Gondoliere (the Gondola driver) is a keeper of many of Venice's secrets. The original gondolas of Venice were covered with a 'felze', sheltering its occupants from the weather as well as prying eyes. The Gondola driver's familiarity with the hidden parts of Venice comes from having an unobstructed view through the entrance doors into the main palaces on the canals.

HIGHLIGHTS
FULL DESCRIPTION

Meet your private assistant at your hotel and get ready to embark on a journey back in time. Il Gondoliere (the Gondola driver) is a keeper of many of Venice's secrets. The original gondolas of Venice were covered with a 'felze', sheltering its occupants from the weather as well as prying eyes. The Gondola driver's familiarity with the hidden parts of Venice comes from having an unobstructed view through the entrance doors into the main palaces on the canals. You will experience a glimpse into hidden Venice from this unique vantage point. Your gondoliere will share the fascinating history of the palaces you pass as well as stories about the families that resided in those palaces, past and present. Your private assistant will meet you at your hotel and escort you walking to the “stazio” (the Gondola parking) where your Gondola experience will begin. If you choose, your assistant may accompany you during the ride and escort you back to the hotel. Otherwise, at the end of your ride, they will leave you to explore Venice and its canals in complete privacy with explicit instructions on how to return to your hotel.
