If you choose the 1-hour boat ride be prepared for a warm trip. If the sun is out you will bake as the entire trip is in the sun. If you endure the ride, and you have no choice once you embark, you are treated...More

The gondola trip is an attraction in Venice. Holding its own with its version of the singing oarsman, spiced further with anecdotes and jokes, is the Yanagawa boat ride. It starts conveniently enough. Near the main train station is the tourism/booking office where one can...More

This is a touristy thing to do, but we opted for a private boat just for the two of us (same price as group rate but 40 minutes instead of 70 min.) We had a 77 year-old oarsman who sang songs and was very pleasant.
