Fantastic outing. We went as a couple and loved the fact there was a blanket to use on the boat as well as being able to bring our own beverages. The singing was so sweet, all very authentic.

We treated ourselves to a gondola ride for our 10th anniversary. It was in September, and the weather that night was comfortable but chilly....that just made the experience better as we snuggled up together. I often watch the gondolas pass by on summer evenings when...More
