This is the second time we have done this in Venice and it was great this time as it was 3 years ago. It was well organised and the Restaurant was easy to find. The restaurant Ai Coristi was brilliant great service and food and really nice people. I would not hesitate to do this again.
Very impressed with the Gondola ride with serenade and dinner, unfortunately missed FREE Murano Art of Glassblowing Tour due to lack of support and information from service desk.
The gondola cruise was amazing and the serenade added so much value to the experience. The dinner was outstanding too! Highly recommended.
