The History of Gondolas
Stemming from Venice, Italy, gondolas were first created so that Venetians could better navigate their city. Situated among six islands along the Adriatic Sea, many of Venice’s first “streets” were waterways, leading to the construction of the gondola, first mentioned by name in the year 1090. Now, centuries after its creation, the gondola’s design has changed very little though the use is much different. No longer the proper means of transportation in Venice, gondolas have made their way to the Western world as an enjoyable pastime. The experience of a gondola ride is both relaxing and historic— something you won’t want to miss.
