It was fantastic and we had a wonderful time. Just enough balance for hacking time and for the beautiful Italian singing. Very cordial staff both on the phone and on the gondola.

We took the grandchildren. They had a great time and so did we. We brought sparkling cider, cheese and crackers the and Italian cookies. When we boarded the boat they put our cider on ice and gave us champagne glasses and wine biscuits. Just have fun

It was a lovely night. We brought wine, cheese and crackers, small plates and napkins. They opened the bottles and provided the wine glasses. We were serenaded in Italian, and saw the city with a new perspective. I highly recommend La Gondola! It was a truly unique and magical experience!

We did not know what to expect. There were five in our gondola. We all enjoyed the experience very much. We Learned a lot about the city of Providence, we were enchanted by our gondolier through both his knowledge of the city and his singing(voice) and we all throughly enjoyed ourselves. We went on a Friday evening. It was a great way to relax and ease into the weekend.

From Our Editors

Recognized by their signature striped shirts, straw hats, and long sculling oars, the gondolieri of Venice paint an indelible picture of the canal city's romantic charms. However, their reach extends far beyond Italy and all the way to Providence, where Marcello and his boatmen at La Gondola pilot the same flat-bottomed boats found in Italy's most famous waterways. Each of his Venice-built gondolas gleams with intricately-wrought ornaments and solid brass trim, and at 36 feet, they comfortably ferry the gondolier and his guests on trips along Providence's riverfront.

Like their traditional Italian cousins, the gondolieri at La Gondola are well-versed in the songs and stories that made these boat rides an institution in the first place, and always tailor their trip details to meet passengers' dreams and desires. In addition to putting these special touches on every trip, Marcello and his boatmen also help passengers take a close-up glimpse of one of the riverfront's most talked-about events: WaterFire, the evening flame festival that illuminates the waterways with the cheery glow of bonfires, torch-lit vessels, and braziers set along the shore.
