Whether by vaporetto, gondola, taxi or crossing on a traghetto, the Grand Canal is always a delight!

It is certainly a spectacle to see the gondollas sail through the Venice canals. I did not find the smell of the canals as hideous as people use to describe -at least not from the streets, as I did not have the chance to travel...More

Gorgeous views but do not take your gondola from here as you can get it cheaper elsewhere! Rather walk a few blocks over to a small canal.

Use the Vaporetto and buy a day ticket so you can enjoy the canale the hole day. You also can use the ticket to get to the Lido or other ilands around Venice.

Take a Gondola ride and curiously investigate the foundations that this city sits on. Watch the characteristics and idiosyncrasys of the people living here, sample the food, the wine, and enjoy a way of life many only dream of.

Take the number 1 vaporetto, (the number 2 has fewer stops and goes too quickly to fully appreciate the views), the length of the canal and admire the architecture. the buildings are a bit faded and grimy in places, but overall a must see.

Such a busy water way, a gondola trip is a must. People moan of the cost, but you can’t visit with out doing it! The views from the many bridges is unreal, a charming place
