Pictures from a Gondola Ride Through Venice
Pictures of a gondola ride through the canals of Venice Italy.
In Venice, and in the world perhaps, there could be no mode of transportation more enjoyable than a gondola ride. To experience the rich visual images that Venice offers to those plying the waters of the ancient canals, a gondola ride is mandatory.  A beautiful picture awaits around ever turn. For visitors that truly want to understand the beauty and history of the Venetians, this experience should not be missed.

Be aware that, depending on season and time of day, a 45 minute gondola tour of the city's canals could cost as much as $150 (not including a tip for an exceptional gondoliere who provides excellent service or sings on request)

However to have a chance to step into the pictures below, this price should not be a deterrent. The gondola ride was definitely worth the premium price. I can think of no better way to experience Venice.
