All of Gondola Adventures' rowing gondolas are imported from Venice and are propelled by oar and oarlock ("Remo e' Forcola") in the manner that gondolas are traditionally rowed in Venice, Italy. Additionally, Gondola Adventures has the only operating "wedding gondolas" west of the Mississippi. Wedding gondolas have carved decks and the most ornate decorations. One of our wedding gondolas, the "Lucia," has a canopy cover (available upon request).
