Description

Step into a page right out of a Venetian storybook as you glide along quiet canals in an authentic gondola. Cruise past ancient palazzos on the Canal Grande, and be serenaded by a troupe of Italian musicians as you pass beneath elegantly arching bridges on hidden waterways.

Settle into a comfortable seat on a beautiful wooden gondola and soak in the scenery as you drift through Venice in the city's original form of public transport. Admire the breath-taking architecture of this floating city, snapping photos of ornate waterfront palaces and splendid bridges.

To make an already memorable journey unforgettable, musicians join your flotilla of gondolas. A troupe of local musicians perform well-known tunes from Italian films and popular culture, infusing their own unique flair into time-honoured traditions.

At the end of the journey you will extend your evening with a romantic dinner at an atmospheric Venetian restaurant.

The people at the gondola service was very rude and disrespectful. They call us names . It was a very bad experience. So many gondoliers and we had to deal with the rudest of them all.

The gondola ride was good but only gave 4 stars because we ended up with the extremely uncomfortable side seats. The best 2 seats at the front were already taken by people who had paid on the door. I think if you book online you should get priority and side seats should be discounted as you dont really get the full experience. The singer was brilliant. We went down some side streets and under bridges. The views were amazing too. The evening meal was at a restaurant called Hostaria Ai Coristi and was exceptional. I had Gnocchi with meat sauce, escalope with wine sauce and french fries and a dessert which was fantastic plus a bottle of Merlot. Service was also brilliant. 5 star's for the restaurant.

The only reason this has been given a low rating is because of the travelling required from San Marco to the gondola boarding area and then between the gondola landing area and the restaurant which were very difficult to locate on mobile apps or map. One of the party had limited mobility with a walker/wheelchair and we had to take a waterbus from San Marco to Giglio and the walkway from the waterbus was very narrow. We got assistance onto the gondola, but were given tiny stools perched on the side of the gondola and had nothing to hold onto to secure and stabilise ourselves. The serenade was lovely however I could not see it because my back was facing the performance or the gondola was to far away. Once over we were assisted off of the gondola, however the directions and distance to the restaurant was rubbish and we had to ask directions several times to find it and it took us over thirty mins and not the five mins stated, so we were exhausted once we got there and disappointed.
