Grand Canal Tour
Oh, to be a gondolier in Venice! In their sleek black boats, gondoliers have been gliding through Venice’s bottle-green canals since the Renaissance, a floating embodiment of Italian song and romance, not to mention facts and gossip about all things Venetian. Paddling through the main thoroughfare of the Grand Canal, above, a gondolier might explain to his passengers, “And here, in this 13th-century palazzo, is where Monet painted his famous rendition of the Santa Maria Della Salute…” Or “here is where Casanova initiated many a tryst.” A gondolier is living history in black pants with an oar.
