Still the Best Way to Get Around Venice
Sometimes rowing is just a matter of being practical, not picturesque
Having recently seen a friend struggle unsuccessfully to start the newish outboard motor of a beautiful old wooden boat she recently bought, I'm freshly convinced that the above (taken today) remains the best mode of transportation in this town. And, as the picture shows, doing without a motor gives you extra space for a couple of large bottles of orange soda and a paint brush.
