We are so glad we did the 1 hour versus 30 minute gondola ride, we definitely could have stayed out longer! It is definitely worth getting out on the water to be able to see the city from a different perspective. Yes, there are cheaper/shorter trips if you just want a quick experience of it/for the 'gram, but this particular tour you get information on various building landmarks and information on how Venetians lived and traded back in the day.

The gondola ride was superb !! we had an extra guide who told us the history of Venice and its canals, we were also able to chat with the gondolier. You spoke pretty good French. We highly recommend this experience !!
