Erin, Jim, Gayle and I ...

    Rialto Bridge

    4.5
    96 reviews

    One interesting aspect of the iconic Rialto Bridge is the padlocks. Apparently inspired by "I Want You", the 2006 novel by Federico Moccia, this practice involves couples writing their names on their padlock, swearing eternal love and throwing the keys into the Grand Canal below. There were a lot of locks of love, when Gayle and I were there and ...

    Over-rated. From the outside, it appears to be just another bridge, albeit a covered one. If you miss it, you're trip won't be lacking.

    Gondola Service

    4.5
    55 reviews

    Our last day in Venice, we came upon this lovely little street called Calle de la Canonica, and we couldn't help but finally give in to the urge to get on the gondola. As you can see in my pictures, this gondola ride is a touristy one and not a practical one as others have mentioned. But this ride goes ...

    44 reviews

    Local legend says the houses are so colourful so the men could find their way home when they were drunk. I don't know if that's true, but it sure makes this island a lovely sight :-)

    4.5
    37 reviews

    The Palazzo Ducale, built in Venetian Gothic style, was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the supreme authority of the Republic of Venice. It opened as a museum in 1923. The regular tour of the Doge's Palace is interesting enough. Within this Complex's Gothic civic architecture, every stone, passageway and artwork seemed to evoke the power that the former ...

    Its quiet expensive, but far cheaper then any other transport of the canals!! Use it more like a boat ride/trip out. Get a ticket and just ride on the canals, its a great way to see the area!
