About This Trip

The Viaggio da Romanza, our keepsake trip package, includes everything in our basic trip package, plus two keepsake wine glasses, a set of chocolate truffles, a framed 5x7 photo of your party, and our signature (non-alcoholic) Bellini beverage. 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 package for celebrating a special occasion with friends, family, or the love of your life!


  • This trip is available seven days and evenings a week, on non-WaterFire Saturdays, and on Partial WaterFire days before the fires are lit.

  • This trip is not available on WaterFire days, or during WaterFire or Partial WaterFire events.

What to Bring

Your favorite beverage. We do provide our signature Bellini beverage with this trip, but if you desire something stronger, we'll have the ice bucket, glasses, and opener ready to go for you. 

Snacks, utensils, and napkins. We provide our signature wine biscuits with every trip, and your Romanza package also includes a set of specialty chocolates. However, you are welcome to bring your own snacks, even a picnic meal! Just be sure to bring the napkins, utensils, etc. as well, since we don't have those items on hand. 

Weather-appropriate clothing. We also have blankets and umbrellas for you to use during your trip, if necessary. 

A camera. This trip package includes a framed 5x7 photo of your party. We also are happy to take photos for you during your trip at your request.
