Venice Gondola Ride
Though drifting through the canals of Venice may scream romance, the €80 (about $108 U.S.; check with XE.com for current exchange rates) price tag for a 40-minute day ride (€100 at night) may just make you scream. A gondola ride is a unique way to see this Italian city, but you'll pay a hefty price for it. Rates are regulated by the city, but you may encounter prices that differ.
