"An Alternative to a Gondola" Gondole, gondoliere, traghetti Tip by keeweechic

Gondole, gondoliere, traghetti, Venice: 21 reviews and 54 photos


A cheap (and more entertaining) alternative to the traditional gondola ride is to hop on a traghetto or traghetti (meaning ferry). For a reasonable amount you can take a cruise across the Grand Canal as the locals do. This is the only place they are used.
