Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Venice's main water thoroughfare, lined with great Renaissance palaces, is a colorful and busy spectacle of gondolas and vaporetti.
Reviewed 3 May 2018

Although it may cost you 100 Euros for just half an hour it is without doubt one of the most memorable things you can do in Venice. Take a gondola on the grand canal and create your memories.

Bought a travel card for the vaporetti and travelled the distance of the canal one afternoon/evening, lovely way to see the city

This is amazing to see every time. There is truly nothing else like it and just makes you feel like you're in another world at another time. So awesome.

It's possible to hire a private driver to take you along the Grande Canal, but another inexpensive way is to take the #1 or #2 Boat Taxi for $7.50 euro and enjoy the canal as it makes its many stops. Sit in the rear on the outside of the boat for good views.

It isn’t our first time to Venice but again it looks beautiful and nice but as always too crowded especially when you want to use the ships at night when you wish leaving the city, like so many other people.
Take many shots and look at it while relaxing at home
