Gondola Rides (Venice) – for those visiting Venice, it’s inevitable that they’d like to sign up for a gondola ride with one of the local gondoliers. Most gondoliers are officially licensed (they must wear black pants, a striped shirt, and dark shoes). If possible, visitors should know which waterways (canals) they want to explore and advise their gondolier of that. Here are the rates:
Daytime personalized and standard tour (40 minutes – maximum 6 people per gondola): € 80.00 (for each additional 20 minutes : € 40.00 )
Night-time personalized and standard tour (from 19.00 to 8.00, 40 minutes, maximum 6 people per gondola): € 100.00 (for each additional 20 minutes : € 50.00 )
Note: Special services, such as singing, can boost the fare even more. This means you should negotiate both the rate and the length of the ride before you get into the boat.
