    Gondola Ride at the Venetian Hotel

    For $18 per person, you can enjoy a gondola ride at the Venetian Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Even though I have actually gone on the real gondola in Venice, Italy, I was excited to take my daughter and husband seeing as we were spending a night in Vegas.

    The inside of the Venetian Hotel and Casino is dramatic, artistic and exciting. The water way on which the gondola rides runs through the back of the hotel, and there is an out door one as well. We went on the indoor ride and our guide was the employee of the month. I could tell at the end of the ride why he was. Charming young and full of energy, he took us along the course and asked if we would like him to sing us a song. The acoustics are magnificent.

    He had a beautiful and powerful voice, he sung Andrea Bocelli's Conte Patiro, Amore and a third song I did not recognize but just as charming. The ride emulates the Venetian gondola and the bridges of Venice. Just before take off, a photographer takes a photo which you can purchase at the end of the ride if you like.

    I guess it is a great way to say you went on a gondola ride without having to spend the thousands of dollars it would cost to fly to Venice.

    FREE: The Venetian - Winter in Venice

    by TravellerMel Written Dec 31, 2012

    Twice nightly, the Venetian holds "Winter in Venice" holiday parade and light show. Line up early - you will want to see this! The light show is against the buildings themselves and will totally immerse you, and the parade is mesmerizing. Everyone is clad in white with reflective or illuminated costumes. You will see the Winter Queen in her carriage, beautiful ballerinas, and tall white ivy (walkers on stilts). I heard oohs and ahhs from the audience, children and adult alike.

    Runs November 18 - January 6

    What an extraordinary ambiance! Venetia itself couldn't do better.

    The quality of the animation and the live music, leave me no doubt. This is my favorite hotel in Las Vegas.

    Besides, this is the only hotel where I don't remember the slot machines. Of course they were there, thousands of them everywhere, but... vanished from my memories. And what a good sign that is!

    Gondola

    Venetian - Las Vegas

    I’ve been in Venice and in the Venetian, and I didn’t take a gondola in any of them.

    As a matter of fact, it is beautiful in the movies and pictures, but it is expensive, and it’s far to be a good way to see the city. If I had to, I think I would choose Venetian, for all the reasons:

    • It’s cheaper - $60 per hour indoor or $50 outdoors in Venetian (4 seats), at least $150 per hour in Venice (up to 6 people)

    • It’s more comfortable – there’s no rain or wind inside Venetian.

    • There’s no extra payment for music

    • It’s better for the inevitable picture – there are no degraded facades in background, and with a good flash the colours will glow in Venetian

    Of course, Venice is unique, and no hotel or imitation will come closer. But gondolas are show for tourists, and that is possible everywhere.

    Venetian Renaissance Hall

    These are said to be the replicas of famous 17th & 18th century Renaissance artists Tiepolo, Rici, Pellogrini, and Bambino. The floor is the exact replica of the Church of Gesuiti of Venice built in 1728. Although, they are just replica's, I appreciate them because they are absolutely beautiful. This hall is located by the Check-In-Area. We spent some time admiring them.

    Just above the Armillary Sphere, by the Check-in-area is a very impressive paintings on the ceiling dome of replica's of Giambattista Tiepolo's paintings of Greek mythology from 1725. It was amazing too me how many people didn't even look up. I am glad I did. Another wonderful glimpse of the originals in Venice. My family were impressed too.

    The center piece of the Check-in-area is this massive Armillary Sphere, which was created by Eratosthenes (276-194 BCE),as a navigational tool with longitude and latitude rings to helped map out the constellations. It is very impressive sculpture that graces the lobby and just above it is a dome ceilings of replica's of Giambattista Tiepolo's paintings of Greek mythology of 1725. For me, it gives me a glimpse of the originals in Venice.

    The Blue Man Group

    by Benson35 Written Jan 22, 2012

    This show is at The Venetian. It is, in my opinion, a fantasic music show. The Blue Man Group are blue men (dressed in black; blue faces and blue hands) who are very talented. They play the most imaginative percussion instruments in the most fasinating ways.
    The sounds they make are amazing! These sounds are mixed with a live rock band (a voice is never heard) and you can't help but feel the energy.

    Parts of the shows are audience participation which is very funny (if you don't get chosen!). The men also bring colour and paint into the show by playing the drums and using people - it's really interesting to watch!

    All-in-all it's a funny, interesting, exciting show that'll have you bobbing your head to the amazing music.

    The Venetian has a souvnir shop where you can buy The Blue Man Groups' CDs, t-shirts and other memorablia.
    I saw this show in 2006 and it is still going strong now! That speaks for itself!

    Take a trip along a canal

    If you're looking for something a little different to do . . . . ride a Gondola in the middle of the desert!

    Gondola rides are what the Venetian hotel and casino offer. You can choose to have an indoor ride or an outdoor ride. The cost (2011) was $16.
    The inside ride is through the canal in the Grand Canal Shops in the Venetian hotel, be prepared for shoppers to stand at the sides of the canal and look down on you in your Gondola! Your Gondolier will sing as you float under bridges and by cafes.

    My parents chose the outdoor ride. They loved it! Comparing it to Venice (Italy) they say it was better! Just as authentic and in much nicer surroundings.

    Gondola Ride at the Venetian

    Loved to sing!

    This is so cool. Hubby promises me the next time in Vegas we are making the time for this. Guess what, we did and it was awesome to experience this. What was so neat is that the gentleman who was our host/Gondoler said this was very authentic and cleaner...LOL! He was from New York and came from Italy when he was 13. He had a lovely accent and sang so beautifully. We enjoyed his company. He teased the gals that shared the Gondola with us because they were from England. They live just across the bay to Italy and waited to come visit Vegas to ride a gondola....LOL! It was very relaxing and we had a picture taken by so many people. It was well worth the money. Everyone should at least try it at least once, because we did.

    Hours of operation: Sunday - Thursday, 10 a.m. - 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. - midnight. Tickets for the indoor gondola ride go on sale at 9 a.m.

    Cost: It was about $16 a person, but that is if you share the gondola. If you want the gondola to yourself, you have to pay $64. Please double check the website of call the attraction for current cost.

    Reservations: Ticket sales open at 9 a.m. and can be purchased only for the same day.

    Located on the 2nd Floor in the canal shops. If you walk thru the Palazzio gambling area (1st Floor) and head up the escalator by the falls, the Gondola Ride is right there.
