How to take a gondola ride through Venice canals in Venice
Definitely bright gondolas and hadsome gondoliers come first to your mind when you think about Venice.

Water splashes under the paddles and you can see sumptuous palaces and colorful small houses from the both sides of the canal.

You really couldn't deny this trip on exclusively Venetian boat. And the moon with champagne and violin accompaniment will complete this totally romantic atmosphere.

How much?

the price on gondola ride depends on the time of the day. In the morning, when tourists are still sleeping, the rental price is the lowest. In the afternoon the price starts from 80 euros (from 9 am to 7 pm). And in the night it's usually starts from 100 euros (from 7 pm to 8 am). The duration of the trip is about 30-40 minutes.

Tips and hints

another secret of how to make a lower price - is to find gondola a little bit further from the popular tourist spots. Keep in mind that it's better to agree upon the price and the duration of the trip before you step into the boat, write it down, and go by your watch.
