A just-the-two-of-you ride costs $50 and lasts about 30 minutes weaving indoors and outdoors along the canal. Sometimes your gondolier will sing romantic Italian songs and will expect a heavy tip. If you’ll be guests of the hotel, the price could be lower or part of a package. For more information, go to www.venetian.com.
