Valentine’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to express our love for the special people — and animals — in our lives. Just like humans, the animals at Farm Sanctuary express many forms of love, including romantic, platonic, and familial, with one another — and they share love with their human friends too.

Mr. Events.

Venice, Italy is the ultimate romantic getaway, but you can experience a piece of the same charm and culture right here in Los Angeles.

Gondola Getaway is a romantic and entertaining ride on a custom Gondola that cruises through the waterways of Naples Island in Long Beach and is great for couples looking for a romantic date on Valentine’s Day. The ride includes food, snacks, fruit, and allows you to bring your own Champaign, wine, beer or any refreshment on board. Established in 1982, the authentic and original Gondola Getaway brings old world charm and thousand-year old tradition to Southern California. Authentic Venetian gondolas gently cruise the enchanting canals and waterways of Naples Island.

Valentines’s Day:

If you want to do something different this year, get on the water. The Gondola Getaway offers a relaxing and romantic cruise; a great way to spend the holiday with your loved one. All Valentine packages include an hour-long cruise through the canals of Naples Island, a long stem rose, antipasto or chocolate strawberries and a framed photograph. Que romantica!

Other getaways include:

The Ultimate Pizza Gondola Experience

Not even in Venezia, Italia can you board your own private gondola with a table set for up to 12 with flatware, glassware, and tablecloth. Your floating pizzeria will include your choice of pizza freshly delivered from the award-winning Dominicos ristorante along with their locally world-famous salad and garlic bread. Two Venetian trained Gondoliers will row you and your guests for an hour while you enjoy the sights and the flavors of this one and only Pizza/Gondola experience at the best floating table in Long Beach. Buon appetito!

Brunch on a boat

The ultimate family style Italian brunch! Italians love a meal with friends at a table, and Venetians love a meal with friends while floating on the lagoon. The Gondola Getaway offers another great food experience on board their large Gondola. You will cruise the canals and waterways and dine on an incredible array of Antipasti including Italian meats and cheeses, grilled vegetables, Italian breads, pasta salads, and much more. You can also bring the champagne and they will supply the peach nectar for you to mix the famous Bellini’s. Salute!

Message in a bottle

This unique service is perfect for any occasion from a birthday to a proposal or even just making a date night that much more special. You can pick a message from their options or email them exactly what you want to say. Your Gondolier will print your message on parchment paper, roll it up and place it in a wine bottle and cork it and have it ready upon your arrival. Included inside of the bottle are sand and small colorful sea shells to help best emulate a feeling of a “bottle washed ashore.” Your gondolier will drop it in the water about half way through the cruise and then expertly spin the gondola around so the bottle drifts up next to the boat and your date. Ti amo!

For more information watch a video on the Gondola Getaway here.

So, if you would like to spend this Valentine’s Day in Venice but can’t afford the trip or don’t have the time, relax and book your gondola getaway here.

WHAT: Gondola Getaway
WHEN: Monday – Sunday | 11 am – 11 pm
WHERE: 5437 East Ocean Blvd. | Long Beach, CA 90803
