European Adventure near Degas House

Gondola Ride in City Park Near Degas House

  • Gondola

Robert Dula, a/k/a Roberto, decided at a young age he wanted to be a Gondolier. So he lived in Venice, Italy and received his training from the Italians. While in Italy, he had his Gondola built. Located in City Park, the gondola is fully equipped with an on-board sound system, so your favorites, such as Andrea Bocceli may be heard wafting through the moss draped oak trees that line the old Bayou Metairie at City Park. Your port of embarkation is at Big Lake, just adjacent to the New Orleans Museum of Art.
The sculpture garden may be seen on your gondola ride, which traverses the lagoons that wind their way through City Park. Many engagements occur on board, and Roberto has bragging rights, as well as photos of these many adventures that he guides his clientele on.
We highly recommend this as yet another European adventure that occurs in the Fauborg Degas and on the Esplanade near Degas House!
