Venice was a wonder of water canals. We enjoyed seeing the gondolas, as we rode the vaporetto (water bus) down the Grand Canal. The curved Ponte di Rialto (bridge) is a famous landmark, and was completed in 1591.
We toured Basilica di San Marco
and enjoyed "people watching" as we walked through the streets that were on land.
Our accommodations were ever so quaint, with our window opening directly onto the canal.
The bathroom, however, though private, was actually in the hall next to our room.
Of course, you cannot go to Venezia and not buy Murano glass. I purchased a lovely necklace there.
