How much is a gondola ride in Venice?

Oh Venice, the name enchants us when we remember that it is the city of lovers, besides being the famous city on the waters! Famous for its Basilica of St. Mark, the Rialto Bridge and its incredible carnival masks, Venice offers us many options of transportation. But today we will talk especially about the gondolas. After all, how much is a gondola ride in Venice? Well, few know, but there’s a fixed rate, so if someone tries to charge you more than that, they are “literally” stealing you, so look for some other gondolier!  Here at Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia you make the trip of your dreams!!! ALSO: see our “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”

Introduction

For you to take a gondola in Venice pay attention: there are several gondola stops around Venice; walking through the city you will soon find one of them, it is important to choose a point where the region is pleasant and close to a tourist point that you want to see. As an example you can take your gondola at the Rialto Bridge stop, which is one of the most famous bridges in Venice, the region is quieter than the Basilica of St. Mark and Bridge of Sighs, at these points the channel turns into a busy avenue of gondolas.

Tip

  • The route of the gondola varies according to where you approach the gondola. You can ask where it passes, but you can also ask it to include in the route the smaller channels (in Italian canali minori). Inside these channels you will see a Venice where only the gondola can take you, because there is only that way to get there: with the gondolas.

How to choose the gondolier?

Gondoliers not only wear the traditional striped shirt, they usually sing, whistle and tell stories during the gondola ride, but some do not speak English, do not sing and do not whistle, so pay attention at the time of your choice; so observe the gondoliers for a while and make the best choice. Always check what will be included in your gondola ride ‘package’, after all it is a very expensive ride and it is worth making the best choice.

1) How much is a gondola ride in Venicet? ABOUT THE PRICES

The official tariff foresees a cost for the gondola (up to 06 people) of 80 Euros for up to 40 minutes; if the schedule is from 7 p.m. it costs 100 Euros. In the low season (autumn and winter) you can even try to negotiate and get better prices, but I am going to give you another advice: if you are only in 2 people, try to find other people to do the tour with you, remember that the price is fixed for up to 6 people, so if take the ride with other 4 people, the cost will be only 14 Euros per person, isn’t it great?

In case you can’t do this tour (that I consider unique), another very economical alternative that few people know is there are some places in Venice that have a kind of collective gondola taxi that cross from one part to another, so that you don’t have to go to a bridge to cross to the other part.

2) How much is a gondola ride in Venice? TRAGHETTO

How do you cross from one part to the other without having to go to the nearest bridge? Using the traghetto! The “traghetti”(plural) as it is called by the natives, costs from 2 euros (no! you didn’t misread, I said 2 euros!) and you can take a picture as if you were in a gondola! Isn’t it fantastic? Find out here How to use the Vaporetto in Venice?

The places where the traghetti leave are the following:

  • Santa Sofia: 07:30 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. (Holidays: 08:45 a.m. – 7 p.m.)
  • San Marcuola: 09:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
  • Carbon: 08:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
  • San Tomà: 07:30 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. (Holidays: 08:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.)

Hotels I recommend in Castello Area

Castello is the largest of all the “sestieri” (neighborhoods) and has an incredible waterside for good walks, in addition to being full of cafes, bars and shops. They are not cheap places to stay, but it facilitates access to the most famous tourist spots and, with that, saves on transportation, as it is possible to do everything on foot!

Don’t want to stay on the island? No problems! Search for Mestre, Campalto or Favaro Veneto, which are the mainland cities of Venice and offer excellent accommodation options. A little further from Piazzale Roma, about 20 minutes by water transport, they do not have magnificent views from the bedroom windows, but it is ideal for those who want to save on accommodation.

Tips

  • The tip to save A LOT is to book your hotel in advance.
  • As we also mentioned: beware of excess baggage! It is very complicated to get around with large volumes in Venice because of the bridges, stairs and narrow streets.
