Hol18: Venezia 1. Gondolas.

This was my third visit to Venice but my first staying on the island – near the Arsenale (1-0 to the..) – as opposed to being a day tripper from elsewhere.  Venice is a crazy illogical place, has a love/hate relationship with tourists but I love it totally.

It can be an expensive place to visit.  Eating and having a coffee on St Mark’s would take up a two-day food budget for me and a Gondola ride starts at around €70.  I prefer the Vaporetto saver tickets and just photograph the Gondolas.
