"The most obvious fact about Venice, bound to strike even the most casual visitor, is the utter improbability of the place." (A Traveller's History of Venice) Weird Venice celebrates that improbability.

Great Gondola Site
I got curious about "Ente Gondola" mentioned in the article in the previous posting. So I did a bit of googling and found the Ente Gondola website. It has great photos of gondoliers and info on renting gondolas, why they're black, gondola weddings and funerals, and advice on selecting your gondolier (and lots more).
