We had decided not to pay for an expensive gondola ride, so we chose the inexpensive option of taking a traghetto across the water to the Ca’ d’Oro, an art gallery that was our last stop. A traghetto is a gondola used to ferry passengers for a short trip across the Grand Canal and costs 0.50 Euro. It is a good way of experiencing a gondola for very little money. After the Ca’ d’Oro we walked back to our hotel, stopping at the Ponte di Rialto (Rialto Bridge).
