Perfect evening

Absolutely perfect! We took to 6pm ride just at sunset, the water was calm, music selected by Robert was perfect and am looking forward to doing this again!

this was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. We couldn't have asked for a better guide and day to do it.

Highly Recommended. However a note: if you're planning on proposing on the gondola, don't expect your SO to be surprised when you pop the question.

How many people can say they took a ride on a genuine Italian Gondola in the middle of New Orleans. The ride was interesting and it showed the beauty of the park. The owner is very knowledgeable about the park. I would highly recommend this to any couple traveling to New Orleans.

I had planned a romantic get-away for the two of us. NOLA GONDOLA was the perfect way to start our weekend together. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet and beautiful peacefulness that is Central Park. Our Gondolier was the perfect host! He allowed us our privacy but also new when to draw our attention to points of interest.... More

The gondola at 5 in the evening this time of the year was a great way to enjoy the sunset and a birthday celebration...The view of nature, music, a lil cheese and a bottle of red wine while Italian music playing in the background....you can't beat that.,,like being in Italy.

Staying in Lakeview

Neighbourhood Profile
Lakeview
Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond City Park more great excuses to stay outside beckon, whether on land or by boat. Developed a good deal later than most other New Orleans neighborhoods, Lakeview has a distinctively different look and feel compared to other parts of the city. Fans of mid century modern design and contemporary architecture particularly enjoy leisurely drives around the residential streets of Lake Vista, Park Island and along Lakeshore Drive.
