You will enjoy a 30-minute shared gondola ride, which takes you along the Grand Canal and the narrow canals between lovely old buildings. On this tour there will be six people in each gondola.

As you glide along, you will see the exquisite palaces and beautiful bridges for which Venice is famous. As you slip through the waterways in the dusk you will be serenaded with popular Italian songs.

At the conclusion of your gondola ride, take a short walk to Ristorante Ristorante Ai Coristi at San Marco, 1995 Venice
