Traveling to Italy can be quite expensive but getting a taste of what it would be like can mean more than just an Italian dinner here in North Texas. Gondola Adventures in Irving, Texas will take you on the most beautiful tour on the city.
The tour takes you on a ride down Mandalay Canal and Lake Carolyn where you can book a time to catch the sunset. The company set out to give you the most authentic Italian experience away from the country by encouraging couples to part take in traditions like kissing under every bridge to signify enjoying life to the fullest.
There are different packages you can choose for your experience ranging from $150 to $500. The packages include anything from chocolates and sparkling cider to a full three-course Italian dinner. Rides on the gondolas start at one hour and can be as long as two hours depending on the package you choose.
While the cruises are normally for two people they do have options for larger groups in case you want to bring the entire family along.
Recently the company added aqua-cyles so if you're not down for a gondola ride you can rent of-these bike Tuesday through Sunday for just $40.
The cruises are open 24 hours every day of the week but they do charge a late night fee after 11 p.m. They do fill up fast so we recommend booking in advance to secure your spot.
