The Venetian Gondola Ride is about as close as most Americans will come to the Venice canal, without traveling to Italy. This guide will tell you everything you need to know about the Gondola Ride in Las Vegas.
Venetian Gondola Ride
There are two options for the Gondola ride – indoors or outdoors. Regardless of which one you choose, the gondolas, price and ride time are the same. Each gondola seats four people, and they are comfortable and intricate in their design. Each ride is about 10 minutes long and takes you through the canal and under bridges.
Most people choose to go to the inside gondolas because regardless of the weather, the Canal Shoppes, restaurants, and St. Mark’s Square all replicate a romantic dimmed-light feel with a blue sky mural above you. Besides the ambiance, there are more bridges to go under inside. But, if the weather is great, you may want to try the outside gondolas at night. Although you definitely know you’re in Vegas, it is a beautiful ride.
Your experience on the Gondola ride depends mostly on your gondolier. Some of the good ones are from Italy, are amazing singers, share interesting facts about Venice, and tell funny stories. They encourage kissing under the bridges and make the ride one you won’t forget. You do occasionally get a bad gondolier who says nothing, sings the obligatory one song and brings you back unimpressed.
Venetian Gondola Price
It costs $29 per person to ride the gondolas, which holds 4 people. If you want a gondola for just the two of you, it will cost you $116. That’s a lot of money for 10 minutes, so check out our gondola ride coupons for the best deal.
Photo packages start at $22.
