Features
Great value, Popular with locals, Family-friendly

You don't need a gondola to see Venice from the water—the best tour of the city is on public transport. The line 1 vaporetto (water bus) starts at bus terminal Piazzale Roma and glides slowly down the Grand Canal, out past Piazza San Marco, then follows the Riva degli Schiavoni up to the end of Venice "proper" before finishing at the Lido. The views are unequaled.
