Gondola Ride

One of the experiences of any Italian holiday is a Venetian gondola ride. For centuries, the traditional flat bottom boat has been a major means of transportation in Venice though its primary role today is to take tourists on rides. Gondoliers may seem like "rough-and-ready" characters, however they are actually highly skilled operators constantly working on the perfect balance of this watercraft. The profession, handed down from generation to generation, is regulated by a guild which issues a limited number of licenses to highly trained gondoliers to navigate the narrow spaces of the Venetian Canals. Explore part of the Grand Canal as well as some other hidden minor waterways. The gondola holds a maximum of six passengers. Please note that this is not a private gondola ride. Your gondolier will indicate the seating arrangements to balance the boat and you may not be seated next to your travel companions. Though you may envision the gondolier singing to you, there will only be a musician aboard one of the boats in your fleet of several different gondolas.

Pick-up details to be advised locally. Approximate tour duration is 30 minutes.

Day #11 01 Jun 2019 - 28 Oct 2019 $66.00

Again a wonderful trip with Gate 1!!!!!!!! Beautifully organized, wonderful accommodations and meals. Coach rides were very comfortable and I really appreciated the WIFi on the bus. By far the most important contribution to my enjoyment was directly related to our wonderful tour guide Andrea. He conveyed his sincere love for his country, was attentive and observant of everyone’s needs throughout the tour. His sendoff to the airport at 4 am was above our expectation. I will never travel with any other tour company than Gate 1.

One of the highlights of the trip was running into my former tour guide, Mercedes, in St. Mark’s Square in Venice. I traveled alone knowing that I’d be in good hands with Gate1.

We thought we got a very good value for what we paid but Fabio with his personal touch, management skills, recommendations for our free time and again his care & concern that everyone was pleased & enjoying the trip made it, by far, the best group tour vacation we ever experienced! Based on the quality of the airline, hotels, meals, local tours, bus transport, transfers, plus other services provided & of course Fabio's management of the trip/tour we feel we can recommend Gate 1 Travel to our family and friends without any reservations.

It was a fantastic experience! I would recommend Gate 1 to anyone. Our guide, Francesco was knowledgeable, organized and very helpful. I would not hesitate to use Gate 1 again.

We had a wonderful trip. Our guide, Vanni Morelli, was fantastic. He is funny and knowledgeable and caring. We could not have asked for better. This was so much better than our cruise trip a few years ago

We had a wonderful time, so informative, great tour guide Francesco, so much beauty to behold, from the water taxi to the hotel, the gondola, the tiramisu, the lasagna, the winery tour, shopping in Florence, the architecture,Vatican Museum, the Sistine Chapel and the wonderful works of Michelangelo! Well organized, and we had a great fun loving time with our fellow Gate 1 travelers. Thank you for a great experience and fond memories!

Good trip. Flavia was great. All the hotels but one (seaside resort) were located in areas where there was easy walking to other restaurants, shops, etc. Accommodations were all reasonable. Local guides were good.

It was wonderful! Can’t say enough wonderful things about Ana our tour manager. She took good care of us and saw to it that we got a look at Italian culture. The trip was simply excellent and I would recommend Gate 1 to all my friends. Rita Hall

GREAT TRIP!! Wonderful adventure but a lot of walking. The local tour people were very knowledgeable and interested in the group learning about Italy’s treasures. The local director in Rome, Marissa, was especially attentive and related so many interesting tidbits and anecdotes. The Gate1 people were also great and caring – especially Heidi - who phoned us two days in advance to warn us of the impending snow in New York (where we were to connect to the Italy flight) in order to re-route us so we could get to Venice on time. Thanks! This was our third Gate1 trip and we have scheduled our fourth for June of this year.

OMG!!!! Trip to Italy was so awesome words cannot describe. Gate 1 delivered everything you said you would. The emails contained all our information from departure to return. The hotels in Venice, Florence and Rome were outstanding. Now the tour guides... what can I say besides OUTSTANDING!!!! I wish i could have videoed each tour. The information they gave us, was beyond anything you can read in a book. Their home country touches, stories and memories made the whole tour even more special. Our group of nine family members were treated so great.! Our Mom who turned 80 in Dec. was treated as if she was their Mom!! Extra concern for her safety, to making her feel as special as she is, too finding elevators where they could!! Our family will use Gate1 again, hopefully soon!!!!

Our trip was great! Two thumbs up for our tour guide, Flavia, and our driver Raymundo. It was just the right mix of time on our own and group activities. I was somewhat apprehensive about taking a coach tour... The "comfort" stops along our route were timed just right...We liked that we weren't changing hotels every night...The food was great. And the coffee! And the wine! I just wish I would have picked up a recipe book so that I could try to reproduce some of our favorite dishes back home.
