Venetian Gondola Rides

Once you have a ticket, you have a time for your gondola ride and you can go and see other things or watch the boats (there were at least three or four wedding parties there during the few hours we were there). Some took pictures on the little bridges over the canals. Most took a gondola ride. The people at the "oar" or whatever sang and they were very good. They were from Italy or told us they were, making us believe it. Some were opera trained.

A picture was taken and we could purchase the photos at a reasonable price. I think we got two for $20 (we were in two Gondolas with five people). Only four people to a Gondola. It was like a city within a city. The sky looked very real and I was wondering what the little rings were until I realized it was a dome and those were the supports that held it up. There were houses and shops all along the canal. There were flowers and music and delighted laughter. This was loud or raucus like the Adventuredome at Circus Circus. This was relaxing and a joy for adults and children.
