Venice, Italy - The Canals

Venice has to be one of my absolute favourite cities!  I loved the fact of no motor vehicles, and that boats were used for transportation, and that I could walk everywhere.  It might be different living there and trying to maintain the old building with it's foundations in the water, or when it floods, but I only saw it through the eyes of a visitor.  

A side canal off the Grand Canal.

One of the many bridges linking up walking access.

No walking beside this canal!

The Grand Canal has lots of boats - water taxis, private boats, vaporettos (water buses/ferries) cargo boats, as well as gondolas.  It was especially busy at "rush hour"!
