    How lucky were we?!! We turned up to be told that our “shared gondola” would just be ours - me and my lovely chap! We had a great gondola ride, down the Grand Canal, passed the Gritti Palace and around the narrow back canals. Fabulous! What are you waiting for? Get it booked - you won’t regret it!

    inexpensive in a shared gondola but the 30-minute tour did not allow us to discover many small alleys or to pass under the bridge of sighs.
