'VENICE, ITALY - October 21, 2011: Gondolier on the gondola in Venice, Italy. Gondolier is a Venetian boatman who propels a gondola. The gondola is propelled by a person (the gondolier) who stands facing the bow and rows with a forward stroke, followed by a compensating backward stroke. Contrary to popular belief, the gondola is never poled like a punt as the waters of Venice are too deep.'
