Sail the Gondola in Venice

( No user reviews )

Venice still draws visitors from all over the world, impressing not only newcomers, but also veterans, who come again and again to admire the city. You won't find anywhere else in the world 116 islands connected by 409 bridges, where everyone is going from one place to another using vaporetti (water buses) and traghetti (traditional gondola ferries), including the postman and the police.

The most famous symbol of Venice, is of course the gondola. Even thought it sounds like a cliche, a gondola ride on Venice's canals is essential for your trip. Legend says that lovers who kiss while passing beneath the Bridge of Sighs will find eternal happiness.

So, if you want to live happily ever after, the ideal place for stealing a kiss seems to be on a gondola ride.
