Viaggio della Dolce Vita


About This Trip

This trip combines the live musician from our Rapsodia package with the chocolates, keepsafe wine glasses, Bellini beverage and framed photo from our Romanza package. This trip is about 40 minutes long. 

An experienced gondolier will gently row you along the Providence and Woonasquatucket Rivers, past historical landmarks, through public parks, and under picturesque bridges. 

This is a perfect trip for your special night out!
