You will have to go to the Rialto area of the city, right by the Rialto Bridge. The actual little piazza is called "Campiello de Remer".
There you will find a sign that says, "Traghetto di Santa Sofia." There you will be able to board your cheap Gondola Ride! You can take this ride from the opposite direction by the Rialto Market.
It runs all the time, there is a gondola every couple of minutes, and it is a service that Venetian residents take to cross the canal. You don't need to buy a ticket or anything. Pay the gondolier when you step on the gondola.
Don't expect the romantic gondola ride with your partner and a handsome gondolier singing for you. This ride is a gondola "Ferry boat." You will not be alone on the gondola, but some random people might join you, but it is still perfect for that Insta moment in Venice without breaking the bank!
Yes, you can do it as many times as you like. You will have a stunning view of the Grand Canal from the gondola, and you can take thousands of photos.
We hope you enjoyed this little tip for one of the most famous and beautiful cities in the world. Please let us know what you think.

The most famous archaeological sites in the world like you’ve never seen before. The evocative scenery of the ancient Pompeii and Herculaneum and the boundless panorama of the imposing Vesuvius are the supporting pillars of what still today represents a memorable spectacle,a journey through time through ancient and glorious Roman necropolis.
