Worth the cost for first-time visitors - travel the grand canal in comfort and listen to a detailed commentary on all the major buildings
Easily visible from the San Marco basin, visit and scale this (less-crowded) campanile for the best views of Venice and the lagoon
Visit some of the classic hotels, casino, cinema: also a lagoon-side market on Tuesdays.
A longish trip, but at no extra cost for those with Vaporetto passes: travel through peaceful scenery, pass the new flood barriers and wander around the fishing harbour where there are several good restaurants - but don't miss the last boat back!
