Gondola Ride in Venice: How To’s

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

This summer Condé Nast Traveler’s Consumer News Director Wendy Perrin set off for a gondola ride in Venice and came away with a few great tips for travelers looking to tour through the city’s ancient canals.

Tip #1: Timing is important! “The price for a half-hour gondola ride increases from 80 euros before 7 p.m. to 100 euros afterward, so go at 6:30, when sunset is close enough and the crowds and heat of the day have died down.” Go to Condé Nast to find out what else Wendy has to say about gondola rides in Venice.
