Venice Gondola Ride and Serenade

Venice, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a very pleasant experience, the Gondolas are lovely crafts, and I was in the one with the serenaders. The accordionist played a variety of pop classic tunes, and then the tenor stood and sang excellently, such songs as A Gondolier, and Volare.
As it was 6.30, darkness fell, and so it was like a night tour also. As we entered the smaller canals from the Grand Canal, the footbridges lent an enchanting echo to the singer's voice, and diners at the cafe's above took photographs. It was very dark in some areas, but the flash from cameras illuminated the musicians spasmodically, and I managed to capture some quite a memorable video shots. Excellent.
