We went to Venice to buy touristy t-shirts for a family member living overseas. Before we left Venice I wanted to find the canals and see if it was worth walking around.

You have to see to believe how beautiful and stunning this place is. Very similar to Naples Island in Long beach. Only if I could afford to live here.

If you have time this is a beautiful place to walk through. You really feel like you're in another country. All the houses are unique. We went right after halloween so many were still decorated.
