Gondola Serenade

Sure it can seem a bit kitsch, but you’re in Venice, the sun is shining or it’s a romantically balmy evening, so what do you do? Take a ride in a gondola! Venice is meant to be viewed from the water, and riding in a beautiful curved wooden gondola is the way to go.

Lie back and relax on velvet cushions while a handsome striped T-shirted gondolier steers you through some of Venice’s most beautiful tucked-away canals. The ringing tones of ‘O Sole Mio’ echo off the centuries-old brick walls of crumbling palazzos as you glide past the churches and apartment buildings, shops and squares of everyday Venice. Venice opens up like a living postcard as you leave the smaller canals to enter the wide Grand Canal, lined with soaring palaces in pastel-hued gelati colors.
