Gondolas in Venice: Random Travel Photo of the Week

Gondolas in Venice, Italy. Photo by Charish Badzinski.

Think of Venice, and chances are you’ll envision gondolas floating gently down the canals, gliding under pedestrian bridges arching their backs toward the sun. Perhaps you see a handsome gondolier in a striped shirt, singing as he propels the gondola forward. Ornate buildings float by in your peripheral view, the scent of fresh tomato sauce and baked bread waft on the breeze. Together it is poetry, but it is the water, slowly swallowing this enchanting city, that hypnotizes you and calls you to experience Venice from her unique perspective.

  1. Hello there! I am glad to stop by your site and know more about Venice Gondola tours. Keep it up! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about Venice Gondola tours in your area.The historical gondola was quite different from its modern evolution- the paintings of Canaletto and others show a much lower prow, a higher "ferro", and usually two rowers. The banana-shaped modern gondola was developed only in the 19th century by the boat-builder Tramontin, whose heirs still run the Tramontin boatyard. The construction of the gondola continued to evolve until the mid-20th century, when the city government prohibited any further modifications.Reservations must be made with a minimum of 7 days notice. venice gondola tours
