  • Une ballade en gondole de rêve, un gondolier super sympa. Restaurant Ai Coristi très moyen. Toute prestation supplémentaire est hors de prix. Le spritz à 8€ alors que la moyenne sur Venise est de 4€. Mais le menu a été parfaitement respecté. Eviter donc les suppléments.

  • Le prix est un peu élevé quand on voit que la gondole coûte 100 euros.. Je ne pense pas avoir mangé pour 119 euros. Le tour en gondole a été un peu court.
