2. Enjoying a Romantic Gondola Ride in Venice
What could be more enchanting than traversing the Venetian canals whilst being serenaded by your stripey-shirted gondolier? It’s the perfect setting for romantic kisses and marriage proposals.
The reality is that it’s more like bumper boats along these waterways, as the canals are clogged with these pricey vessels.
It costs about €80 for a 20-minute ride, and even more if you want a song.
No local Venetian would ever be caught in one of these tourist traps.
