3. Define Romance

What’s an Italian-themed development without romance?

Yes, love and romance fill the air at the Grand Canal.  The mall elevates romance to whole new level by bringing in Venetian gondolas where lovers or friends can create special moments as a gondolier steers—and serenades—them along the canal.  One can also pledge their love at the development through a love lock.  It’s believed that lovers who leave this token of romance along the railings of a bridge will be granted everlasting love.
