GETTING AROUND IN VENICE
Venezia is not a big city and the best way to visit it is to walk around the beautiful streets and small bridges.

Water taxis are also available, certainly more expensive than public transport, but faster and more comfortable, especially if you have a lot of luggage. The gondola, is hardly a valid transport system, but it is certainly an experience that deserves to be made during the stay in the lagoon.
