"Go for a ride in a gondola if..." Gondola Tip by SydneyGal

Gondola, Venice: 168 reviews and 283 photos


Go for a ride in a gondola if you can afford to. Avoid the gondolas with the hot pink faux fur seats in heart shapes - oh so tacky, yuck! Some of the gondolas are quite nice, especally those which have Italian men singing at the top of thier lungs as you cruise the canals of Venice. Extremely touristy and very expensive, but enjoyable nonetheless! I myself was content enough to cruise the Canale Grande with a ferry because I was a poor backpacker. Also because I would rather spend the money on a big Italian meal! To the left is one of my favourite photos taken in Venice.
