We kissed under every bridge, fed each other strawberries and thoroughly enjoyed the mandolin player. We watched the sailboats go by as we drank sparkling cider from fancy wine glasses. It truly was a magical evening.

I used the message in a bottle to propose to my girlfriend. The music, full moon, and city lights were the perfect backdrop to this special moment! A great story for beginning our life together..

It was a very nice experience. The only thing I didn’t like was when our gondola arrived the musician stepped off and had a cigarette. Not very professional. Then our gondola ride said it would be a 50 min. Ride. The gondola man got us...More
