Pictures of a Gondola Ride Under the Bridges of Venice

Pictures of a gondola ride under the bridges of the canals of Venice Italy

As the gondoliere skillfully guided us through the canals we found an opportunity for a stunning picture at every turn. Some of my favorite pictures are of the numerous foot bridges that carry foot traffic across the city. I share them with you freely here.

The soft sound of people's multi-lingual conversations rising in volume as our gondola approached each bridge and then trailing off as we moved away through the canal, added to the charm of the excursion. 

Though charming, romantic, and filled with opportunities for memorable pictures, we definitely did not feel alone or secluded.  Though it was a very public experience, the gondola ride did bring the romance for which Venice is known. 

The tour of the canals of Venice does not disappoint and will be the highlight of a trip to this ancient city on the sea.
