    The Grand Canal has been called the finest street in the world. As your gondolier wearing the traditional costume rows the gondola, you will see a boulevard of baroque palazzo dating from the 12th to the 18th century. Some of the major highlights that you will pass by are Santa Maria della Salute curch, Teatro la Fenice, Accademia bridge, Peggy Guggenheim, Mozart's home and more.

    During the Gondola ride, a singer will board one of the boats and croon traditional Venetian numbers as you drift on the canal.

    This city is beautiful on approach with views from the boat while travelling through. The beautiful architecture of the classic buildings and statues is amazing to see. Highly recommend you visit San Marco and Rialto. Also take a ride on the famous Venice canal.
