It was really very nice, but you have to reckon with the fact that you won't sit alone on the bot, but that's not so bad, you have to see the positive side of it (someone is there to take a picture of you, whoever wants something romantic has to pay more so that there are no others on the same bot

Lovely experience for half the price of other gondolas! You get to go up the main canal for about 10min and then through a few little canals and under bridges for about 15min. About 25-30min on the gondola. Would have like to stay longer but still worth it for the experience!

It's very good, it's 25 minutes and no one sings hahaha. And you share the gondola with other people, unless you are 4 people in total. It is what it usually costs and since you are going to Venice you should do it. It's very good and I recommend it
