￼I’ve always loved the idea of Venice. Leave it to the Italians to come up with an idea as mad as building on water and expecting it not to sink (even with out the Acqua alta, high water that floods the lower levels of streets).
The gondola has an equally mad appearance. It has a style of its own and makes for great photographs, but practically isn’t its selling point. I mean, the picture above has wonderful rustic colors and conjures up a great image of Venice, but would you step into that leaning gondola?
