It was a great experience, just you have to know that before going to the gondolas you have to get a ticket from an organizer a few meters before! Either way, you won't regret doing it.

We had the chance to see a gondola just for the two of us, it was great!

Increíble experiencia, pasa por mar abierto y por canales.
