This came out some time last year, and it's been e-mailed around between some of my gondola friends. It's a computer game on the Orbitz website. My guess is that the folks at Orbitz are hoping people will play it and consequently want to tour Italy - using Orbitz of course.
The gondolas aren't exactly accurate (ferro on the back and no forcola for example) but it's a kick in the pants and can be addicting - just ask my kids.
When I'm stuck at my desk with stacks of the proverbial "stuff I don't wanna do", the Orbitz Gondoliero game can be a fun diversion.
Play it and tell me what you think. You can post at the bottom of the game, respond to this post here on the blog, or send me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
