Gondola




The gondola is a traditional, flat-bottomed Venetian rowing boat, well suited to the conditions of the Venetian Lagoon. For centuries gondolas were once the chief means of transportation and most common watercraft within Venice. In modern times the iconic boats still have a role in public transport in the city, serving as traghetti (ferries) over the Grand Canal. They are also used in special regattas (rowing races) held amongst gondoliers.[1] Their primary role, however, is to carry tourists on rides at established prices.[2]






Gondola lift
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaJump to: navigation, search

8-passenger gondola lift in Panticosa Ski Resort, Spain.
Genting Skyway in Genting Highlands, Malaysia.
Interior of a gondola at Killington Ski Resort, Vermont.
Classic 1960s 4-seater monocable gondola lift in Emmetten, Switzerland built by GMD Mueller. This lift was of the same type as the old Whistler, British Columbia gondola.
Interior of a gondola lift station, in this case an intermediate station where gondolas detach from the line, automatically travel through the building on tracks and attach to the line of the second section. The drive motors for both sections are visible below the bullwheels.A gondola lift is a type of aerial lift, often called a cable car, which consists of a loop of steel cable that is strung between two stations, sometimes over intermediate supporting towers. The cable is driven by a bullwheel in the terminal, which is connected to an engine or electric motor. Because of the proliferation of such systems in the Alpine regions of Europe, the French language name of TÚlÚcabine is also used in an English language context. Gondola lifts should not be confused with aerial tramways (where a cabin is suspended from a fixed cable and is pulled by another cable), which are also sometimes known as "cable cars".

I usually say, "GONDOLA!" then turn up my hearing aid.

J/K. "GON-do-la."
