Geocache Description:

[ITA] La gondola è l'imbarcazione tipica di Venezia, grazie alle sue caratteristiche di manovrabilità e velocità che l'hanno resa, fino all'avvento dei mezzi motorizzati, l'imbarcazione più adatta al trasporto di persone lungo le vie d'acqua che attraversano la città.
Tutti i visitatori sono affascinati dalle gondole, ma con un prezzo base di circa 80€, e massimi che possono arrivare anche sui 140-150€ soprattutto per gli stranieri, si tratta per molti di un'esperienza da evitare. C'è però un modo per spendere meno... basta utilizzare la gondola da traghetto, più larga di quelle normali ed impiegata per attraversare il Canal Grande in sette punti lontani dai ponti pedonali al prezzo di 2€ a tratta. Questa cache vi obbligherà a... salire in gondola!

[ENG] Gondola is the typical boat of Venice, thanks to its maneuverability and speed that made it, at least until the advent of motorized vehicles, the most suitable boat for passengers transportation along the waterways in the city.
All visitors are fascinated by the gondolas, but with a base price of about 80 €, and a maximum that can extend over 140-150€ especially for foreigners, this is for many an experience to be avoided. But there is a way to spend less ... just use the ferry gondola (traghetto), which is wider than normal and is used to cross the Grand Canal in seven points far from the pedestrian bridges. The price is 2€ each way.
This cache will force you to ... get on a gondola!
