Excellent performance The music was a real plus, and the singer was a budding Pavarotti. One small drawback: the tour did not include the Bridge of Sighs To be repeated

Venice is a beautiful city and a serenade gondola in the evening is definitely one of the best ways to experience that beauty!

Easy to book gondola ride with same day availability. Easy to find and check in. 30 minute ride with seranade was a highlight of our time in Venice.

Loved the live music while enjoying a gondola ride. Lots of great energy from the audience and the musicians were outstanding. I was fortunate to have the gondola with the guitarist and the singer in a nearby gondola. Sometimes the singer and guitarist drift apart and makes it difficult to hear or for the musicians to keep rhythm with the lag time.. I felt bad for the other audience members who did not get a musician on board, as I imagine it would be even more difficult to hear. Overall, I loved my experience, but it can improve.

Easy meetup and unique and fun experience. We enjoyed the gondola ride and the musicians were great.

You will go on a delightful gondola ride through the Grand Canal of Venice where life has been deep-rooted to Venetian tradition and has remained an immutable city. The stunning buildings with their facades facing the canals have each a story to tell about Venice.

Your experience of Venice from the serene waters of the canal will be heightened with a serenade. Your gondola will be a part of a flotilla of gondolas where one of them will have a singer and musician on board. You can enjoy the pleasant music as you cruise along the canals watching the city pass by. You will cruise along Canal Grande and minor canals around San Marco square and Rialto. The twilight and the city’s lights create a magical time when you can imagine Venice in all its glory!

In addition to everything else, you'll also have the delightful experience of being gifted a Carnival Mask, enhancing the overall enjoyment of the occasion.

This typical Venetian experience is bound to make an indelible impression on you by charming you with the city's sublime beauty.
