The Singing Gondolier in Venice

Now, I surrender! I was searching for photos in my external hard drive. Those photos are actually taken during  my trips in Venice, Italy.  It seems that I cannot find the one I wanted to post here. I am trying to find this singing Gondolier in my photo albums. Sad to say, with the thousands of photos I have in my 3GB external hard drive, I can’t find it right now. I need to organize the photo albums in this gadget when I have the time.

The famous gondolas in Venice, Italy.

I have been to Venice four times already. For some reasons, I love to keep on coming back in this city. There are a lot of reasons and one of it is very simple, I fall in love with Venice. One of the things you must experience in this floating city is to do a Gondola rideFor centuries, gondolas were the chief means of transportation and most common watercraft within Venice. The person who is maneuvering or driving it is called the gondolier.

I already rode a gondola twice. During the second, I witnessed this singing gondolier who was ahead of us while we were exploring the canals of Venice. With the acoustic + electric of his musical instrument, I found his performance very appealing. Never miss a gondola ride when you are there!

There are a lot  of  sights  to see in Venice. Among the few ones are the Doge’s Palace, Rialto Bridge, St. Mark’s Basilica, buildings at the Grand Canal, Bell tower of St. Mark (Campanile di San Marco), Clock tower (Torre dell’Orologio), Scuola grande di San Rocco and more.
