No trip to Venice — or The Venetian — would be complete without a graceful and romantic glide down the Grand Canal in an authentic Venetian gondola. Float beneath bridges, beside cafes, under balconies, and through the vibrant Venetian streetscape as your singing gondolier sweeps you down the Grand Canal for a ride like no other.
Among the many things to do in Las Vegas, stepping back in time and into one of our Old World gondolas is among the most fun and romantic. Surrender to the romance of a live serenade and take in the sights from a one-of-a-kind vantage point as you float along the Grand Canal and under bridges, absorbing the enchanting atmosphere of Las Vegas’ most unique and elegant resort. Or choose the outdoor ride and enjoy an open-air experience right on the Strip.

- Gondola University - On any day, the most-asked question to a gondolier at The Venetian is, “How can I become a gondolier?” Now, those fans have the opportunity to try – if only for a few hours – through Gondola University. The new program, limited to nine participants per day, shares the “ins and outs” of piloting a gondola. Participants receive a gondola hat and t-shirt, a souvenir photo and a degree certificate from Gondola University.
- The Gondolier March - A little-known photo opportunity exists twice a day as our team of gondoliers – singing in unison – march along the indoor canal as they arrive for a day of serenading. Catch the spectacle at 9:50 a.m. and 4:20 p.m., beginning at the gondola turn-around in the Grand Canal Shoppes.
