A done thing when you are travelling to Venice, Gondola rides make up for the most memorable and enjoyable tourist activity in Venice. Spearheaded by the gondolier who glides you through the calm waters against a medieval backdrop of Baroque buildings, the Gondola promises a dreamy experience to every tourist, no matter what age you are.

Gondola is a flat bottom Venetian boat and is one of the chief modes of transportation in Venice. However, these days, Gondola rides are mostly used for tourist purposes. The charges are usually fixed and non-negotiable but you must not miss having a ride as while on water, you see a completely different side of Venice that you would never see again.
