Feel the romance of a classic Venetian experience with a serenaded gondola ride through Venice's famed canals, capped off by dinner at a renowned local eatery.
Settle into a traditional gondola boat for a 30-minute ride through the Grand Canal and some of the city's smaller waterways, while musicians provide a passionate soundtrack of Italian ballads.
Settle in for the ride as your gondolier skill fully navigates the boat along Venice’s famous Grand Canal using a long wooden oar. Admire the historic homes, palazzos and cathedrals that line the canal as you travel along with a flotilla of several other gondolas. Head through some of the city’s smaller canals where you’ll pass under bridges and get a glimpse of quieter, charming backstreets. Adding to the enchanting atmosphere, a skilled opera singer and musician (usually an accordion or guitar player) will ride aboard one of the gondolas in your group and serenade you with classic Italian ballads.
At the end of your 30-minutes ride, disembark at the picturesque Campo Santa Maria del Giglio and in few steps you reach your second destination: a traditional Venetian restaurant, where you will savour an authentic Venetian meal in a restaurant located close to Saint Marks, which offers traditional and international cuisine.
