Once in your life everyone should hand over €80 in cash to a shady looking suspicious character for '30mins they won't forget'. Come to Venice and experience the Gondola with 3 friends. 4 in a boat with the gondola man at the back is just...More

The gondola ride does not need any guidance. You can get a map from the hotel n reach the starting point. After that you just enjoy the ride.
