Venice is still the only city in the world that does not have a car. No car does not mean no road. Its roads are wide and narrow, and there is a small alley in the corner. The road surface is not paved with asphalt, it is paved with sea water. It is not a car that is driving on the road. It is a steamboat and a hand-drawn wooden boat (Gondola).
The light and slender hull and the black hull are called gondola. It is especially suitable for the narrow and shallow canals of Venice. Each boat can carry 6 passengers, 1 boatman, and 2 people in the rear. Block, three left and right in the middle, the bow single seat, the boatman to see which side will stand on the other side to maintain balance. The boatman wore a blue-and-white strip or a red and white T-shirt, a straw hat, standing at the stern and swaying a long single paddle. The bow is slightly tilted, which offsets the weight of the paddle and prevents the gondola from turning in place. Legend has it that the Gondola, which has become part of Venice, is a boat created in the shape of the Venetian Governors hat. In short, its unique shape has already penetrated the hearts of people all over the world.
Gondola also has some fine little details - golden angels, golden horse-shaped handrails, etc. It is said that the value of making this gondola is equal to a Ferrari.
Gondolier, Gondola, Water Lane, Xiaoqiao, and another Gondola pass by on the water, nodding their heads and smiling, and there is no sound at this time.
There are three famous golds in Venice, namely black gold, platinum and gold. Among them, Black Gold is the most comfortable black boat in the world, and people are very kind and very eager to call it - Gondola. Come to Venice to experience Gondola. Every boat has a rower.

If you want to ask, what is the best way to visit Venice, it is absolutely right to take a gondolas and sway in Venice. The unique Venetian canoe has a unique name, which is Gondola. This light, slender and unique boat has always been a tool for Venetian people living on the lagoon. According to the documentary record of 1094, its name comes from the first governor of the 7th century.
Gondola has a very long history. The 11th century was the most popular period of Gondola. At that time, there were more than 10,000, but today there are only a few hundred gondola left in Venice. Although the number is only one-twentieth of the 18th century, it is gratifying that a small boat factory like St. Trovaso is still making and repairing such a boat, allowing this ancient Venetian tradition to be circulated. The design of
Gondola was originally a variety of styles. The Gondola in the 16th century was exceptionally beautiful. The nobles often showed off their wealth by riding a satin and silk, and the beautifully carved gondola. In order to curb this extravagant atmosphere, the Venetian Senate issued a ban: no decoration on the boat was allowed to be displayed, the installation must be removed, and all the gondola were painted black. The only panel that was left for decoration was the bow. This tradition has been maintained, and today's gondola is also a unified black, only to be decorated as a flower boat in special occasions.
The style of Venice is inseparable from the "water", the waterways of the water, the clear waves of flow, like a silent girl, the eyes are pouring tender. Its architecture, paintings, sculptures, operas, etc. have an extremely important position and influence in the world. Venice has the reputation of being water, beautiful because of water, and thriving by water, and enjoys the reputation of water city, water city and Hundred Island City.
Gondola is the most representative means of transportation in Venice. It has been more than 1,000 years old. The boatman is mostly a young man with a strong striped shirt and straw hat. Visitors travel through the small alleys of Venice. Gondola has two pointed ends, the hull is black, most of them have beautiful interiors, and some chairs are a love heart, designed for lovers.
Gondola boatmen dexterously handed the boat to the designated position, turned around, turned, docked, lined up, arranged for the tourists to sit in a comfortable and easy-to-balance position, and then gently drove the boat out of the dock . Most of the tourists accompanying the group did not have enough time to line up for the ride. They had to watch the gondola in and out of the pier and take photos to take photos. Gondola sways in the narrow, narrow waterways, and beads across the bridges one after another.
