Classic gondola tour in Venezia, Italy

About This Canal Boat Experience

Expect the unexpected. Alex revels in the underbelly of the city, not the crass face of the commercial city as presented by most gondoliers.

If you want stories and legends, she’ll weave them for you. If you want romance, it’s round every slippery canal corner. If you want intrigue and gossip, then Alex is as earthy as a local boatman and can swear in Venetian dialect.

But if you want to listen to the lagoon at night, in companionable silence, that’s equally seductive. Venice is a canvas for projecting your flimsiest poetic fantasies - and no one does it better than Alex. I came to experience her gondola ride for travel articles, including for National Geographic Traveller, and left light- headed. You will too.
