    The gondola was a great experience, very romantic and very quiet, it was an unforgettable part of our trip to venice. The tasting tour was also great, our guide was full of goodwill and shared a lot of his experience with us. Also the cichetti were delicious, I highly recommend.

    The gondola ride has been an experience that you cannot miss in Venice and the tasting shows you the most typical wines of the place with a super friendly guide who speaks several languages. Recommended without a doubt.
