This was a full boat so there was only about 3" of boat left above the water & the people in the 3'rd pair of seats were idiots so each time they saw something they liked they would lunge towards it and the boat would tip, then when everyone else reacted it would tip the other way.

This is a lovely part of Colmar, France. Lots of little shops and restaurants as well as very pretty views. The market is a great location from which to start. Parking on Sundays can be difficult.

What a pretty place. The flowers lend to a very colourful area. We took the boat along the river, and what a treat this was. The restaurants are very intimate, as one would expect from a small town in France. It was a perfect Sunday afternoon.

Yes, the little Venice area is small by comparison to the real thing but to me that just adds to the charm. Spend 15 minutes or half a day if you like but don't miss it. The place is definitely worth a photo or three or more.

To be honest apart from the river running through I'm not sure how it gets its little Venice title. I've seen far more spectacular places with this title. However the buildings are pretty and it has a nice cosy feel to it. You will easily stumble upon it as you wander the streets

This was a very small part of Colmar that seems to be pictured everywhere. I wanted to make sure I went to where all of the pictures were taken and see La Petit Venise and was surprised with how small it was. It was beautiful and there are several restaurants nearby, but I was surprised that something so photographed was... More

The Little Venice area of Colmar is essentially about four or five blocks with a fair number of restaurants and winstubs and a shop or two thrown in -- there are restaurants basically on both sides of the canal. The walkway between Rue de Turenne and Boulevard Saint-Pierre is easily overlooked and one of the nicer parts of the canal.... More

When strolling through Little Venice's narrow lanes of romantic old buildings at evening and a raven just flies over your heads, you feel like fallen into a fairytale book. Tiny old special shops, old excellent restaurants and beautiful views, what else do you need to come here?
