Description

For a meal in a truly unforgettable setting, nothing could be more romantic than a gourmet, 3-course dinner aboard an authentic Venetian gondola. Glide through the canals of Newport Harbor on an elegant vessel as you sip a festive drink and indulge in delicious cuisine.

Step aboard an ornately carved and finely crafted wooden gondola, imported from the Italian city of Venice, and meet your friendly gondolier. If you’d like, they might serenade you with a song or 2 as you cruise, or you can just choose to sit back and enjoy the serenity of these peaceful waterways as you talk and dine.

Savor 3 courses of fresh and flavorful cuisine accompanied by sparkling water or cider, or make your meal even more magical by purchasing or bringing along a bottle of wine or champagne.

Superb experience: great gondolier, food, and gondola. Improvements to be made: a lighting source for the dinner and boat, time of dinner should be explicitly listed on Expedia, for the money, amenities like bottled water should be plentiful and a given.
