When in Venice one must go on a Gondola. But which Gondola style should you choose? Where should you take the Gondola from? And what should you wear whilst on a Gondola?
It is one of the most romantic experiences to do when in Venice. You can take a Gondola from nay different areas of Venice. Where you choose to tea it from all comes down to personal taste and bartering. On average a thirty-minute ride is 80euro.
Taking it from the famous Rialto Bridge is stunning, but can get very busy.
It is very expensive to get a Gondola made. There are no restrictions on who can get it made. You can read more about the Gondola here.
My picture whilst visiting Piazza Ducale a must-see.
Once a year there is a fest called Redentore where Gondoal racing happens on the famous Giudecca.
What To Wear On A Gondola?
This is a perfect Instagram opportunity and you can get prosecco and a man playing the piano accordion. Keeping in mind to get on and off a Gondola can be challenging. I would opt for some white luxury trainers. A very bright Pucci print outfit and oversized eyewear.
This Pucci fabric is from high quality, end-of-roll fabrics unused by catwalk designers.
I could also throw in a pyjama party and wear my Pucci print outfit. Many people turn heads when I walk the streets of Venice wearing this.
I am in Piazza San Marco the famous square.
It is a very comfortable and the perfect print for the summer holidays. You can order an outfit with this Pucci print.
i teamed it with my lioness copper belt, made in Italy. You can also opt for afloral dress too.
I am turning fifty so one of my treats is going on a Gondola with my Friends.
Trending a vintage shirt dress is a must. It is being made as I write. What colour should I opt for?
I am looking through my vintage section to see what matching brooch I will wear.
Yves Sant Laurent brooch 1980. One of my fabulous brooches. Here is another brooch I may wear?
The men working on the Gondola always wear Nike trainers.
Walking in Venice is stunning and trainers are essential to endure the hard pebbles that leave you aching after many hours of walking Venice.
The Interior Design Of A Gondola
They vary in colour and blue and red are the popular ones. I would choose a more ornate Gondola as it makes the experience very romantic and fabulous for photography.
It really is wonderful to sit in and they have velvet pillows for your comfort.
Why Dress Up For Venice?
It is an open-air museum and a place to showcase your best wardrobe. You can never overdress in Venice.
Burnt orange and earthy colours are part of the architecture in Venice. So trending a Halston suede dress, jacket in earthy colours means you are respecting the history of Venice. I would opt for a Pretty Woman, polka dot dress.
It has been a crazy Covid lockdown year. I just suffered months of lockdown and it is why I came to Venice to relive and get rid of my fear of living. This is a place to recapture what life is all about.
