The inside story

The best way to enjoy Venice and its gorgeous canals is on a ride in a charming traditional gondola boat.
Now used for tourist purposes, the story of this unique form of transportation began in 1300 when the first gondolas were used to transport people across the Grand Canal. The structure of the boat has changed over centuries, even if high quality wood used and the long construction process (over one year) has remained the same. Moreover, in a so particular city, which floats on a magnificent maze of canals, the art of creating this means of transport unique in the world has played a vital role.
Hop aboard with an expert gondolier, the driver of this mythical boat, for a romantic and exclusive ride that wait for you in Venice!
