Vegas Gondola

No trip to Venice or The Venetian [hotel] would be complete without a graceful and romantic glide down the Grand Canal in an authentic Venetian gondola. Float beneath bridges, beside cafes, under balconies and through the vibrant Venetian streetscape as your singing gondolier sweeps you down the Grand Canal for a ride like no other.

M and self took a ride in one of these gondolas yesterday.

The Venetian and The Palazzo hotel complex in Las Vegas, Nevada, is said to be the world's largest, with 7,117 rooms.

The ceiling is truly vast and replicates the sky during a day with sunny intervals, believe it or not.

There are expensive designer shops, ranging from Davidoff cigars to Godiva chocolate; to the artist Graham Knuttel's gallery.

The gondola ride was enjoyable to the extent that the gondolier burst into song on two occasions.

Later in the evening we saw a show in our hotel called Fantasy.
