Grand Canal Not the Best Destination for a Gondola Ride

I've often compared the Grand Canal to one of the busiest roads I've ever seen. It might be nice to look at, but definitely think twice before boarding a gondola for a ride in the Grand Canal. http://www.thelocal.de/national/20130818-51453.html

A bad week for German tourists-- one lost her arm to a shark in Maui.

It's so sad when a holiday ends in tragedy. A traffic accident in Venice, who would have thought?

How sad. It's hard to imagine how that happened. That article is almost completely devoid of details.

This is very sad. When there, I did wish for traffic lights on the Grand Canal, even though that would definitely have taken away some of its charm.
