The Venetian gondola has evolved over a long period of time, almost 1000 years, with mysterious origins. Its shape has adapted over the centuries to the shallow canals and mudflats of the city. The modern version is uniform, with precise measurements, at exactly 10.87 meters long, 1.42 meters wide, with 1 side longer than the other. Earlier gondolas had a cabin, operating until as recently as the last century. In the 16th Century they had elaborate decorations, but after the government passed a law the decorative elements disappeared with the exception of the prow on the front of the vessel.

If you’re visiting Venice on a romantic holiday, then you’ll almost certainly want to take a trip with your partner on this unique type of watercraft. There are approximately 150 canals and 450 bridges in Venice. The bridge in this painting is one of the largest spanning the Grand Canal. It’s name is the Rialto Bridge, or Ponte di Rialto in Italian.

The first bridge at the site was Ponte della Moneta, built in 1181 by Nicolo Barattieri, an engineer and architect. The current bridge dates from 1591, and is lined with shops and merchants selling wares under its archways. The uniqueness of the Rialto Bridge and the Venetian gondola is something that you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. Except Las Vegas of course, where they like to create some spectacular and elaborate copies.
