Maybe when we get there I will feel differently.

Thanks for the hotel tip. We are not really late nighters anymore (sob) so staying outside the city would suit us fine.
There is nothing romantic about a gondola trip. Would you think a candle lit dinner where the waiter stands next to your table the whole time romantic??

To be honest they are a bit overrated and overpriced but women do love the notion of going on them. Three fucking times (three different women) I've had to endure them, it wouldn't be a stretch to suggest it was the enforced Gondola trip which was the straw that broke the camels back each time for me. Anyways very similar to getting on those rickshaws they used to have in Cork when drunk, a novelty at first but soon this wears off. It is not all negative though, some of the Gondaliers are great craic so if you get one who is this will be the highlight of the trip. Don't forget to tip him. Also I suppose it is something to cross off your list, kind of a when in Rome thing.

Better to go look at them passing under the bridges and think what a lovely meal we're going to have on the money we saved on that💑💏
