Never took a gondola ride in Vencei, but I think the rain would not deter me.
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).
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. :)
well, I'd try it, given the chance.
Love the photo. I'd like to try it one of these days.
You don't like gondolas? I'd love to take a ride in one!
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.
