"Take a GONDOLA RIDE. It is..." Gondole Tip by chrissyalex

Gondole, Venice: 50 reviews and 54 photos


Favorite thing: Take a GONDOLA RIDE. It is touristy....but it is definately part of the Venice experience that should not be missed! It really is romantic...even of you are sharing the gondola with 4 other passengers! The art of building gondolas is a traditional art form ...passed on from generation to generation. 'squeranolo' is the Italian word for gondolabuilder. The wooden parts on a gondola have to be wet and heated to bend into the appropriate form.
