“Up and down the grand canal on the bus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

The buildings are so beautiful! Wonderful scenery and plenty of busy activity on the canal. Plenty of public transport, but try to avoid the "rush hour"

“How much water!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

I hadn't appreciated just how vast the Grand Canal was - the water buses are a great way of getting about and enjoying this to the full.

“Scene from a film!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Beautiful, views do not disappoint. Your breath is taken away when you first see it. Some restaurants are expensive and quite commercialised but if you go back a few streets you will find good food at reasonable prices.
We were there in April and had blue sky every day. A great time to go. I would recommend everyone who can to visit this amazing place!
