For all that I adore Gondolas, and have taken probably close to a thousand pictures of them during a variety of visits to Venice.. other than taking a Traghetto across the Grand Canal (Why did the tourist take a Traghetto? To get to the other side) I have never had a Gondola ride. Is that so wrong?
I still love them. Gondola: the world renowned symbol of Venice. Count out the six sestiere, as depicted on the "ferro de prua" on the prow.
Here are some snaps. All with a Canon S90.
