Here is a photo I took in the summer in Providence, Rhode Island of one of the gondola slowly going down the river. I not sure which one of the gondola it is. I have never been on one, since I am single and would feel funny since most people that ride them are in love. Someday I can see myself taking my girl friend on a romantic ride down the river.

Check out their website at

A little trivia the gondola the "Cynthia Jacob" was constructed and shipped from Venice, Italy, in the spring of 1997 while the first one The "Cynthia Julia" was constructed in Manchester, Massachusetts in May, 1996 and completed in October, 1996 It's believed to be the first truly authentic Venetian gondola ever built in the United States

That's so cool!  I had no idea there were any gondolas in Rhode Island.  One day I will have to visit that state.

Hi Debra,

Providence is a great city. If you ever visit Rhode Island in the summer time, you have to see the Water Firer, which they play classical music and light fires in the middle of the river. They also have the gondola rides.

Cynthia Julia

I came across this article and was shocked to see a gondola with my name! I look forward to one day taking a ride in the "Cynthia Julia" :)
