Today’s travel photo is of a crowded canal in the busy San Marco area of Venice, Italy. San Marco is the area where you will find the largest crowds as it has a lot of the major tourist attractions of Venice, most notable of which is Piazza San Marco and St Mark’s Basilica. The large crowds of tourists attracts a large number of Gondoliers who offer romantic gondola rides up and down the picturesque canals. Some of these canals can become quite a traffic jam when a few gondolas and boats get in the one place. As a passerby it can be an interesting sight. Still, there is nothing better than the sound and sight of a gondolier singing his way up a canal in Venice.
