Venice's first female gondolier

“I have always been in love with gondolas, unlike my three sisters, and I used to prefer going rowing with my father to going out with my friends,” says Giorgia Boscolo, who has become the first certified female gondolier.

One for the ladies: the first woman ever to pass Venice's rigorous gondolier test has been approved for a license. Giorgia Boscolo is the daughter of a gondolier and has loved the flat-bottom boats since childhood. She's now licensed as a trainee.
