This is arguably one of the most famous scenes from Venice, Italy, a snapshot of the gondolas floating in the Grand Canal with a view of the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore in the distance. The 600 year old bell tower of San Giorgio offers spectacular views of Venice and was even featured in a painting by Monet.

I like this scene of the gondolas because there is a gondola missing on the right hand side, conveying the message that life in Venice is a continual romantic journey.
