Supplying the full Venetian experience, the hotel puts on indoor gondola rides around the Grand Canal Shoppes. They're pricey, but still cheaper than gondola rides in Venice! Tours start from St Mark's Square. Better yet are the newest outdoor gondola rides by the main entrance of the Doge's Palace. These gondoliers are required to be Italian, or at least have travelled enough in Italy to be able to talk about it first hand. Plus, they must have great singing voices as they croon romantic melodies to their passengers. Many a wedding proposal has been made here. They even have a special wedding gondola, oversized and all in white, if you'd like to take your vows here.
Sun-Thurs 10 am - 11pm; Fri-Sat 10am-midnight
Adults $16, private 2-passenger gondola $64. Reservations must be made in person, same day
