      all right

      The Gondola only makes one turn. What does save is the Serenade. The romantic dinner, nothing at all .... it is not a restaurant that can be said to be romantic, quite the opposite. A restaurant for older people. And very hidden. I find the excursion quite expensive.

      DON’T SPEND YOUR MONEY. It was the biggest scam ever. When I was looking to do a gondola ride I read numerous reviews and there were so many tours to book from, it was quite hard to decide. I did this one because the explanation sounded romantic and relaxing. When we got there it was like packing sardines in a can, the description said 4 people plus 2 musicians in one gondola, it also said that the ride ended by the restaurant that you would be eating at. The reality was 6 people to a gondola 2 facing forward, 2 facing backwards, and 2 in the middle of the gondola facing each other sitting on a very little stool that was extremely uncomfortable. The 2 musicians were on the first of the many gondolas serenading the whole group of gondolas if you could hear him. They took us down one U shaped canal that started 40 feet from the location in which we got in the gondola and the entire ride smelled like sewage. No one knew where the restaurant was located.
