Venice – Gondoliers

Venice without gondoliers?  Impossible!  Here are different aspects of their daily routine.

But first things first.  Where do the gondolas come from and get repaired?  The workshops are called squeri.

A gondolier outfit consists of a tee shirts with blue or red stripes, black pants, black shoes and a hat according to the regulations.

He, I have not seen a female gondolier, needs to be able to keep his cool in sometimes complex situations.

His balance better be excellent.

He needs to be able to navigate in tight spaces and around tight corners.

Other times he has plenty of space.

Good Night!
