Cruise on Vaporetti numero uno along Venice's Grand Canal, the canal of all canals. A fantastic journey through the heart of Renaissance architecture including highlights such as the Casa d'Oro, St Mark's Square and the Ponte Rialto. The Vaporetti is the standard mode of water transport for the Venetian public. You buy a ticket and validate it at one of the machines before you board. A bit crowded and noisy, but the best way to see Venice at a relaxed pace. It's also an opportunity to get close up to a hot (not) gondolier in action without having to pay through the nose!
