For a more Venetian experience, a gondola ride should not be missed, even if it might be a little expensive for you taste.

Depending on the season and of course on the gondolier, the prices vary and usually include the tip but if you really want to feel the Venetian air you definitely have to try it out. The view from the gondolas is something entirely different than from the narrow streets or squares. Not to mention, you might get some little tit-bits about the city from the gondolier. Don't miss it!

Address:
Venice, Italy
