The gondola ride at the Venetian is modeled after authentic Venetian gondolas and look pretty neat. After the ride I felt a little disappointed and thought that the ride was not worth it. You can choose from the indoor gondola ride ($15 for adults and $7.50 for children 12 and younger) or the outdoor gondola ride ($12.50 for adults and $7.50 for children 12 and under). And if you really want it to be romantic you can spring for a private gondola which are $60 of inside and $50 for outside. We went on the outdoor ride and we shared with another couple. The ride was only about 10 minutes. The Gondola covers areas that you can see from the strip. The Gondolier was a nice lady with an awesome voice, but the ride was so short.If you decide to try it, the hours of operation are: Sunday through Thursday from 10am to 11pm, and on Friday and Saturday from 10am to midnight. I also saw something about a wedding gondola, that is elaborately decorated in white and gold.
