PhotoPOSTcard: Venice From a Gondola’s Perspective

Gondola ride in Venice

Last Updated on 06/13/19 by Rose Palmer

The gondola is a form of transportation that is totally unique to Venice. For many, a trip to this city is not complete without a gondola ride through its canals. Most people though take a gondola near St. Mark’s square and as a result, their gondola experience is nose to tail with other tourists. For a less touristy alternative, I picked a gondolier on one of the quiet back canals in the Dorsoduro district of Venice. This district is an easy vaporetto boat ride across the Grand Canal from St. Marks square, yet not many tourists seem to go there. As a result, I had peaceful and relaxing gondola ride that gave me a different perspective of this city built on top of the water.

Thanks for visiting
