Did you even go to Las Vegas if you didn’t take a ride on a Gondola at the Venetian?!?! It’s one of the things my daughter wanted to do so bad!!! It was literally number 2 on her bucket list with Circus Circus Adventuredome being her number one.
However, when we arrived at the fabulous Venetian, we were told outdoor Gondola rides had a 3 1/2 hour wait! Unfortunately you can’t phone in reservations, so it’s literally a first come first serve bases.
We were then informed that the indoor gondola rides had a 45 minute wait. Same cost. Same concept. These gondola’s just cruise indoors around the mall inside the Venetian. We took the indoor reservation and kept our fingers crossed it was as awesome as an experience as the videos we watched on YouTube of the outdoor Gondolas.
Venetian Indoor Gondola Rides
No trip to Venice — or The Venetian — would be complete without a graceful and romantic glide down the Grand Canal in an authentic Venetian gondola. Float beneath bridges, beside cafes, under balconies, and through the vibrant Venetian streetscape as your singing gondolier sweeps you down the Grand Canal for a ride like no other.
Among the many things to do in Las Vegas, stepping back in time and into one of our Old World gondolas is among the most fun and romantic. Surrender to the romance of a live serenade and take in the sights from a one-of-a-kind vantage point as you float along the Grand Canal and under bridges, absorbing the enchanting atmosphere of Las Vegas’ most unique and elegant resort. Or choose the outdoor ride and enjoy an open-air experience right on the Strip.

While I have never had the opportunity to cruise the outdoor canals at the Venetian, I can tell you Haylie and I had one heck of a time! Just watch the video above! My child legit could not stop smiling and giggling. You definitely get your money’s worth.
That was actually the thing I was curious about when it came to the indoor ride since they are both the same price. Outdoors you have the glamorous Las Vegas scenery. Indoors? It wasn’t that bad! The mall ceiling is actually beautiful!! Such a glam mall!
Our gondolier did an amazing job keeping us entertained as well! He sang his tunes and was so informative when it came to info he shared with us about the history of gondola’s and Vegas itself!
I would highly recommend taking an indoor reservation if you can’t score and outdoor one! We had one heck of a time! My daughter literally watched her video over and over she was so happy with her experience! Hopefully next Vegas trip we can take an outdoor cruise and I can compare the two for y’all!!!
