The canal trip was very enjoyable as we passed by many lovely buildings. One could see the how the canals were so important to this port city. We had a great tour guide who explained everything.

The Venice district is lovely, and a good place to wander around. Lots of canal side restaurants make it a good choice for evening dinners / strolls. I enjoyed some of the street art in this area.
