The Venetian Gondola Rides in Las Vegas

True story: A Las Vegas gondola ride is more relaxing than a gondola ride through Venice. I speak the truth here, I swear. And I highly recommend the Venetian gondola rides at the Venetian Resort as a diversion from the hustle and bustle of daily Vegas life.

Like many hotel/casinos in Las Vegas, The Venetian is built on a city-centered theme (much like nearby Paris or New York, New York . This one replicating the canals, architecture, and aura of Venice, Italy.

Most of the themeiness of The Venetian abounds in the “Grand Canal Shoppes,” a mall of sorts disguised as an Italian oasis. From the painted-blue sky set to cast off a constant sunshine to the muted red stone and brick facades to the “streetmosphere” of street performers, the Venetian is a mini-Italian city. What makes the hotel, however, into a true silly American oasis in that carved out through the mall is a replica of the Venice canal, complete with shining gondolas and singing gondoliers available to take tourists on a ride through the property.

Venetian Gondola Ride Indoor vs. Outdoor

There are two different gondola rides at The Venetian Las Vegas, Nevada: one indoor and one outdoor. Though I have yet to ride the outdoor gondola rides, I can’t imagine it being better than indoor. Outside, I imagine, you’d be riding a gondola in Las Vegas, with views of the nearby hotels and casinos. But indoors you are riding a gondola through Venice. It’s a more authentic experience in a fabricated Italy.

Whether you choose to take a ride inside or outside, take a break from gambling (hopefully on the Sigma derby plastic race horse game!), Cirque du Soleil shows, and checking out the World’s Largest Chocolate Fountain and take a ride through Vegas on a Venice gondola!
