If you choose the 1-hour boat ride be prepared for a warm trip. If the sun is out you will bake as the entire trip is in the sun. If you endure the ride, and you have no choice once you embark, you are treated...More
The gondola trip is an attraction in Venice. Holding its own with its version of the singing oarsman, spiced further with anecdotes and jokes, is the Yanagawa boat ride. It starts conveniently enough. Near the main train station is the tourism/booking office where one can...More
