photoblog image Buon Giorno, Venezia

Buon Giorno, Venezia

Gondolas normally take six people and can be shared. The (mostly male) gondoliers wear black pants, a striped shirt and closed dark shoes. They may or may not sing but usually do give some information during the ride. Gondoliers stand up to row using a single oar as this is the best way to row through the narrow canals of Venice. 


This photo was taken early morning on one of the many foot-over bridges over the canals. These gondolas were getting ready for the day's business. As can be seen here, other vaporettos (water taxis, some quite fancy ones) were also getting ready to push off. Having seen "The Tourist" some time ago brought back fond memories from Venice. And one not so fond one; it was in Venice that I dropped my beloved tripod and smashed its base mount to bits.
