What To Expect

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Venice Faberest, Campiello Santa Maria Zobenigo, 30124 Venice Italy

It is estimated that there were 8-10 thousand gondolas operating on the canals of Venice during the 17th and 18th centuries. Today, there are just 400 that are still in active service. Although most of the gondolas are used for touristic purposes, you'll be fascinated by the strong bond they continue to have with the history of Venice.
