An ancient rowboat that originated thousands of years ago, the gondola has a unique design to allow just one gondolier to navigate through the narrow waterways with a single oar.
Newlyweds interested in an Italy honeymoon will be fascinated to learn that back in the 1600s, there were an estimated 10,000 gondolas being rowed around Venice! Today, the romantic, historical experience of a gondola ride makes Venice a popular place to visit, and gondolas the prime source for transportation while you’re touring this beautiful city.
Venice Offers Romantic Gondola Rides During Italy Honeymoons
It is recommended that spouses on their Italy honeymoon take a gondola ride on the quiet, back canals if they are looking for something more romantic. Since these rides go through less touristic areas, couples can enjoy sights and sounds of Venice in a different, more personal way without gondola traffic. However, for those looking to see the major sights, gondola rides on the Grand Canal offer exciting tours of the city and the gondolier may also provide information about specific sights and locations, or even sing a song.
You will find that many gondolas are ornately decorated and some even have comfortable seats and blankets for the ultimate romantic experience. You and your partner can stroll around Venice and take in the sights and choose the gondola that suits your fancy during your Italy honeymoon.
