About This Trip

Due Mondi means "Two Worlds," and truly, this trip offers the best of both! The Partial WaterFire is one of our favorites, because it allows you to experience both the beauty and surreal quality of WaterFire and our signature, authentic gondola trip, the Viaggio dei Sogni. This trip is 35 minutes long. 

WaterFire is an art installation created by artists Barnaby Evans. Full Fire events take place on Saturdays throughout the late spring, summer, and fall. You can learn more about this event and its history at
