We had the best time on our gondola ride!! Our Gonolier "Marcello" was like listening to an "old soul" historian of Providence and RI in general. He'll point out buildings, church spires, warehouses but engage him with questions. We found out why so many buildings...More

We went on a late Sunday afternoon ride. Quiet but romantic. You have price choices depending on add-ons like a musician. Prices are $89 to $179 for 2 people plus tip.
