I think that for the most part, all gondoliers are expert sunset-watchers.
We are in the business of creating perfect moments for our passengers.
Passengers like to see sunsets, so we give them what they want.
After years of doing so, a gondolier gets pretty good at it.
Tonight I managed to arrange things such that my couple had the best view possible of that bright orange ball as she kissed the horizon.
Sunsets are beautiful, as they light up the sky,
but if you really want to get your money's worth, see it from the water.
Just ask a bunch of gondoliers - they know.
