ponte della ferrovia 2

ponte della ferrovia 2

This is from the same bridge. Just the other direction. The channel is used daily by many boats. Gondole find it particularly hard to cross it. They say: it is like crossing a highway on foot. Yet there are few gondole services who are not addressed to tourists and who instead take you from one side to the other of the canal grande. Thus avoiding having to do a big roundabout to use the 3 bridges. They carry many people at once and charge each person 40 cents. I don't even want to know how much does the average gondola ask for a touristic tour of the city. Maybe with an orchestra like we saw some posts ago.
