abc wednesday - G is for "gondola"

A little rain didn't keep these (I'm guessing)
honeymooners from their romantic 
ride on the Grand Canal!
Personally, I wouldn't be caught dead—
but don't let me spoil YOUR fun.

[See more abc wednesday posts here.]


  1. Never took a gondola ride in Vencei, but I think the rain would not deter me.

  2. Bibi -- skip it—too expensive! To get the experience (but like the locals), I take the traghetto across the Grand Canal (and—almost always—standing).

  3. I was about to say that I'd do it but now that I've seen your tip, Alexa, I'll take your advice. Traghetto, duly noted. :)

  4. Love the photo. I'd like to try it one of these days.

  5. You don't like gondolas? I'd love to take a ride in one!

  6. I DO love gondolas (and goldoliers)! But I won't pay those big euros for what is—let's face it—just a boat ride (albeit in Venice, but you're still in Venice whether you ride in the gondola or not).
    Exception: If I was a bride in Venice, I'd absolutely arrive at and depart from the church in a gondola.
