What can I say that has not been already said.
Take the No 1 Vaporetti from Piazzale Roma late afternoon.
Snag a seat at the front or rear of the boat to enjoy the views of both sides of the canal as you head towards Piazza San Marco.
A must do!

I figured that if you're going to visit Venice, one must take a gondola ride. The gondolier first asked us for 150 euro ?!?!?! for a 30 minute ride. We settled on 80 euro for the three of us. If you go early in the day, the prices are lower.
