hi,

i booked direct on a web site called www.venicewelcome.com the cheapest place i found, they also do serenade and dinner deals, i did this and it was well worth it and it included drinks. check it out for prices i paid about £38 for serenaded gondola trip and 5 course meal.

hope this helps

enjoy!

Were there other people on the gondola with you?

hi,

the gondola seats 6 and we were a group of 6 so we were all together. but you would be sharing with others if less in your group.

MMmm. It sounds a bit cheesy and I would probably curl up with embarrassment but we are travelling with 2 other couples who might like it. What was the restaurant called Cuckoo? was the food any good? I can just imagine my TA friends, Lanska, Robi and Sophie screaming "NOOOOOOOOO!"

Thanks cuckoo. I wasn't meaning to sound snobbish about the experience but I just happen to have an extremely low embarrassment threshold! (I can't even watch Richard and Judy cos Richard is such a twit!) Don't bother looking up the restaurant - I emailed the company - it is Al Giglio. they have even sent me the menu. Not as cheap as you mentioned though. About £53. Thanks again.
