“Picturesque and Breathtaking View!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012

We booked the Superior double room at Hotel Principe and we were so delighted that they gave us their best room with a large balcony facing the Grand Canal. The view was just amazing! Like a piece of painting that is moving about in front of you! Definitely, one of the most beautiful sights I've seen. There's nothing like Venice anywhere else in the world!

“vaporettos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012

Make sure to get a 3 or 4 day vaporetto ticket. Works out cheaper, possible to hop on and off and they also go to the islands and the lido.

“The essence of a visit to Venice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012

The Grand Canal provides the essence of a visit to Venice as the city life revolves around this fascinating body of water. There is so much activity from gondolas, waterbuses, water taxis to the commercial boats that carry building materials or goods to the many construction sites and businesses throughout the city. No visit to Venice is complete without some time spent alongside or on the Grand Canal - the vaporetto (waterbus is a brilliant way to travel the canal rubbing shoulders with locals and visitors alike.

“A Lovely Afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012

Get a season ticket, find a sunny seat and travel on the Number 1. You will enjoy sights not often seen from just wandering the streets and it is really good value for money.
