Visiting any of the locations along "the Canal", are worth the visit. So many things to do there or just watching people go by and relaxing by the water is wonderful as well.

Nice place to stroll and just enjoy the day and weather and do some people watching. You can also do some kayaking, etc.

Don't miss this hidden gem! Be sure to take a stroll along the side of the canal, or better yet a Gondola ride. This canal provides a great get-a-way from the city just above.

Very surprised that in the downtown area of a large city there could be such a peaceful place to walk. Unfortunately we were there in the early evening and the museums accessible from the canal were closed. The walk itself is well worth a visit.
