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.
The gondolas are still made in the city and most are kept anchored in the lagoon.
Along the way you will see Venetian palaces lining the Grand Canal
They are varied and common.
