"Take a RIDE ON THE GONDOLA" Gondole Tip by Krystynn

Gondole, Venice: 50 reviews and 54 photos


Favorite thing: "Sailing round the world in a dirty gondola oh, to be back in the land of Coca-Cola!"
- Bob Dylan

:-) My sentiments exactly, Mr Dylan.

Yes, this is part of the lyrics to a Bob Dylan song....

Fondest memory: There is no better way to appreciate the beauty of Venice than from a gondola. Really. However, you MUST be prepared to pay the price.

If you choose to ride a gondola from a stand during the day, please expect to pay at least EUR 60.00 for up to 6 people. You can bargain the price down with the gondoliers (but not with those at major gondola stands) and this is generally for shorter rides only.

Remember also that night rates are ALWAYS higher. So, do plan everything carefully before you embark on a gondola ride...
