If you have the chance to take a canal ride down the Neva River, you can check out the embankments and the numerous beautiful bridges.

There's a lot of action along the Neva Embankments in the daytime. But this is one of the most incredible places to take pictures just before and after sundown. The light is incredible and the lights of the city and buildings just make it easy....More

This entire area is beautiful and a fun place to walk. It does seem like you are in Venice except the river is wider.

Yes there are. I did the Neva river and canal trip, (twice - thanks to Mr.Putin's state visit). We should have done the Aurora trip, but it was cancelled because Putin was there.
