The most popular boats of Venice
What makes Venice unique today is the fact that it is one of the few cities in the world where it is not possible to drive a car, nor ride a bike. The only possible means of transportation are the various kinds of Venetian boats.
Among the most popular boats of Venice there are the caorlina (fore and aft are crescent-shaped), today used in the Regata Storica and in other boat races, the sandolo, a flat-bottomed boat, and obviously the gondola.
A gondola, characterized by an asymmetric design, can accommodate until six people, more the gondoliere. Extremely popular among tourists, it is the symbol of Venice and the most famous Venetian boat.
