I was exhausted to go up a lot of stairs 🤣but after that....I could get to the view spot and I was impressed with it.
Every detail of the gondola has its own symbolism. One of many parts that caught my attention is the iron prow-head of the gondola, which is called "fero da prorà" or "dolfin" (you can see on the bottom left corner of this photo).
That particular part is needed to balance the weight of the gondolier at the stern and has an "Ƨ" shape symbolic of the twists in the Canal Grande. Under the main blade there is a kind of comb with six teeth or prongs ("rebbi") pointing forward standing for the six districts or "sestieri" of Venice. A kind of tooth juts out backwards toward the centre of the gondola symbolises the island of Giudecca. The curved top signifies the Doge's cap. The semi-circular break between the curved top and the six teeth is said to represent the Rialto Bridge. Sometimes three friezes can be seen in-between the six prongs, indicating the three main islands of the city: Murano, Burano and Torcello.

Throwback to the first time my little guy hiked Vesuvius. Young and with a mustasche on fleak
One of my favorite things❤️
Check out Bologna's sleek and futuristic underground high-speed train station!
At this is how it’s done at @maisonvalentino
“I have asked the seamstresses of the Atelier to personally name each dress
with a name of a flower or with the emotion brought by the flower itself.
I was inspired by the Abécédaire de Flore”. @pppiccioli
The absolute highlight for a history buff. To walk through the burnt city, listening and experiencing what it was like before the night it turned into ashes was an unforgettable afternoon. Again, our trusty tour guide @ricksteveseurope
helped us get the best out of the experience.
Seen here ☝🏽 is the amphitheater 😍 which is still in use for festivals and performances. The stage has a beautiful layout with many levels and backstage entrances. The seating area is massive and as I sat there soaking it all in, I wondered what it would have been to experience a performance back in time.
