Venice is synonymous with its lovely gondolas. This tour that includes a gondola cruise on the legendary Grand Canal, accompanied by a couple of Venetian musicians, is your portal to the charms of an antique life. The icing on the cake? An unforgettable traditional Italian dinner at Ristorante Al Giglio that will make you go “mamma mia!”
Cruising through seldom-used waterways of the Grand Canal, this gondola ride represents a truly Italian experience as you are regaled by our charismatic Venetian duo of a singer and a musician. Our tour makes sure that you avoid any kind of crowds and long queues for a truly intimate experience so you can have a taste of the local life. With an enthralling commentary on our mobile app to fill you in on the fascinating heritage of Venice, you will also get to see some iconic locations in the city along the Grand Canal such as Accademia Bridge, Peggy Guggenheim Collection Palace, La Fenice Theatre, Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute and more.
Having sunk into a soul-stirring evening in the “Bride of the Sea”, we will continue living the Italian life as we head for a traditional three-course dinner (CHECK OUT THE MENU - hyperlink menu here) that will leave you with an indelible foodgasm. And you thought perfect evenings are a myth?
