Essential Travel Experience #19 — Ride a Gondola in Venice

       Although the price has gotten fairly steep in the last ten (10) years, one of the Venice’s quintessential experiences is a gondola ride. Whether you have a great singing gondolier or just a relaxing trip, nothing beats the soothing, quiet ride through the narrow  canals, listening to the gondolier warn others of his arrival.
