When one is visiting the city of Venice, a gondola ride is expected. A gondola ride through the Grand Canal. You would pass by every iconic building that rose to it’s grandiose style in the Italian Renaissance. These waterways are some of the most famous in the world. Hollywood and dreamers believe that Venice is the hidden jewel in Italy that one should visit before their demise. Do I agree with them? Well the only way I was going to solve this question would be to go on my own gondola ride through the water ways of Venice during my stay in the city of masks.
