IMG_0604a.jpg--- The traghetto is a bit larger than a gondola. These craft are used to ferry passengers from one side of the Grand Canal to the other and are useful when one otherwise has a long walk to reach one of the few bridges across this canal. It's not unusual to see a traghetto carrying a load of many people (some standing!) on these short journeys.
