There are two options – 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 Grand 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 on the Vegas Strip 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 to make the experience 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.
Two times each day, the team of singing gondoliers march along the indoor Grand Canal Shoppes singing in unison. Catch this photo or video opportunity at 9:50 am and 4:20 pm from Sketchers to Barneys New York.
Do you want to learn how to be a gondolier? Gondola University will allow you to do just that. Only 9 lucky people each day can participate in the new program where the gondoliers share the “ins and outs” of piloting a gondola. Participants receive a gondolier hat and t-shirt, a souvenir photo and a degree certificate.
