“A unique way to see the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

We took a gondola around the city waterways and saw beautiful buildings from another viewpoint. We did not like that it was too short for the amount that was paid.

“No other place like it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

If you go to Venice, spend the extra money and stay in town on the Grand Canal. No other place like it in the world and that's why we travel such long distances.

“Chaos on the water - but it all works out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

Get on a vaporetto, any direction (you can always get back), walk along the Grand Canal, cross the bridges - savour the sights, sounds and smells. Try to do it early at least once or twice during your stay (7.30am sounds good)!

“An adventure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2012

Wonderful way to see the sites of Venice.The amount of traffic is interesting,from trash boats, to taxis,to moving vans to food vendors all in the same waterway.
Beautiful buildings and bridges. A nice quick way to get around.
