"Cheap Gondola Rides!" Gondola Tip by SandiM

Gondola, Venice: 166 reviews and 273 photos

if you don't mind going in a group of 3 or 4 or 5, you can get a Gondola Ride for under 50 Euros if you ask your concierge at your hotel. You will be directed to a pier and the gondolas go at a certain time of day, first come first served. You get a nice 1/2 hr or so ride through the little canals and a portion of the Grand Canal. The normal rate for a private ride is about 100 Euros, so finding out this information was greatly appreciated. Remember to tip the singer and accordian player! They appreciate it!

Address: Start at the Grand Canal
Directions: Check with your hotel's concierge.
