Eco-sustainable tourism, designed to respect and support local culture, art and traditions

Your Private Evening Gondola Ride in Venice starts from the picturesque square of Campo San Giacometto where you will meet your local guide.  This square is home to the oldest church in Venetian history, dating back to 421 AD.  The area is in the daytime a bustling part of the city since it’s where the Venetians come to buy fresh groceries at the nearby fresh food market, the Rialto Market, located next to the Grand Canal.

The Rialto area gave the name to the famous Rialto Bridge, known for its unique architecture. Learn the story behind the design as you cross over. We will make sure to stop at the top of the bridge where you can take stunning photos of the Grand Canal. Venice at twilight is a sight for sore eyes!

You will continue your stroll in the calmer evening air of Venice, through the small streets without the daunting crowds, and walk across the charming bridges and discover hidden piazzas. Your guide will make plenty of stops along the way to tell you more about this city’s history and its anecdotes. Feel free to ask as many questions as you want.

No tour of Venice would be complete without visiting the political and religious center of Venice, Saint Mark’s square. Reaching this beautiful square at this time of the early evening allows you to admire the Basilica of Saint Mark completely lit, along with the Bell Tower and the Doge’s Palace.  Surely an unforgettable moment as your guide shares with you the stories and history of the buildings that surround you.

Just a stone’s throw away a gondola is waiting to take you on a peaceful and romantic ride through the canals. Your LivTours private guide will make sure you are comfortable and take some photos of you in the gondola before waving you off. For 30 minutes you will enjoy the gentle and very classical way to see Venice, from its narrow canals!

  • Private tour + Gondala ride = Amazing Experience in Venice!

    We had the best evening with Nico, our guide, who took us around Venice. He was very informational and new so much about the history of Venice. After the tour, we went on the gondola and it was amazing. Recommend!

  • See Venice at its best

    We are so happy we took this evening walking tour while in Venice. The city is so much more peaceful in the evening and the views and monuments at night are simply enticing. Our guide Sara was a lovely person and very excellent guide. The gondola ride at the end was the perfect way to end our Venice experience. Very romantic!!
