A romantic gondola ride—on the Charles?

omantic cruise on the Charles River, anyone? You may have never known they’re there, but you can’t get much more romantic than gazing at the Boston skyline from an authentic Venetian gondola. Gondola di Venezia has two gondolas, available by reservation for any occasion but especially popular with lovebirds who practice the Italian tradition of kissing under bridges—and men who pop the question. Luxurious amenities are also available, including roses, chocolate, and a live accordion player. Moravek



The Charles River begins in Hopkinton and zigzags for 80 miles to Boston Harbor.
