Brilliant experience! We were lucky enough to be on the gondola with the musician and singer who put on a great show. I would recommend the later trips after 7pm when it's more quiet and it starts to get dark because the canals look fantastic lit up. Highly recommended.
We loved this trip, the seranade and accordian made it feel special and it didn't matter that they weren't in our boat, we could hear them just fine. Would recommend this for people who don't mind sharing the gondola for the same experience and saving over half the price of having a private one.
Absolutely fun event! Great way to see the city. Wish it lasted a bit longer, though!
The ride was great and unique. I did not see any other gondola service with Serenade. We were lucky to be on the same gondola as singer and accordion player. Surreal!
P.S. The price is very worth it. Standard rides are 80 EURO! No Serenade
This was truly magical and romantic. We were VERY lucky and had a gondola to ourselves. You travel around in a small flotilla of gondolas with the singer and musician on only one of them. We were lucky once again to be in a boat behind the singer. If you were at the front or back of the procession then it might not be so good. Up to 6 people per gondola.
This should not be overlooked! You glide along the canals all the while being serenaded. Yes, you are amongst other people and gondolas but take the time to realize where you are and who you are with. It is magical how you wind your way through some quiet areas and then along side a busy restaurant where others clap along. It was fantastic and well worth it!!
This experience was fantastic! The accordion player and singer in our group were wonderful and the views through the canals were beautiful.
We were absolutely mesmerized by this experience...the gorgeous scenery and the serenade made us fall in love with Venice, Italy!
