This was absolutely worth it! May not have been a SUPER savings, but still saved us. The gondolier was supposed to be a woman, you may request a male if you would prefer a more authentic experience. My BF and I laughed our heads off that his accent kept changing from 'somewhat' Italian to Brooklyn, lol!! Madame Tussaud's was fun, lots of photo ops, free glasses, but scare circuit is VERY scary! Lunch was great, even got free dessert included with the meal thanks Zefferino's! Request to be put near the windows when you go upstairs, then you have a 'view' of the canal! Oh, and it's good luck if you kiss under the bridge on the gondola ride!
