what can be said about Venice that already has not been
said? Perhaps that if you haven't been to this amazing city, it
is about time that you did? Venice is the pride of the Adriatic
and seems to rise mysteriously from a lagoon out of nowhere. St.
Mark's Square is the heart of the city but there is so much more
to see and do while in Venice. From the famous winding footpaths
to the Guggenheim museum, there is something for everyone. Doge's
Palace stands tall and beautiful and was once the residence of the
elected leader and seat of government. There are numerous outdoor
cafes, wandering minstrels, and the unique travel system, the water
taxi and gondola! You can walk from stop to stop and enjoy the activity
in each part of the city or you can hire a private gondola to take
you on a tour of the intricate waterways and serenade you while
you relax and enjoy the scenery. Water taxis are the way to get
long distances and all-day passes may be purchased for a reasonable
fee. Perhaps, that fee is the only thing reasonably priced in Venice,
unless you go a few blocks off from the tourist zone and find a
local shop. Here, there are bargains galore. Instead of paying the
equivalent of $16 per scoop for Italian Gelato, you can get a double
for $1.50. It pays to shop where the locals go.
