"The Number One Traghetto" Canal Grande Tip by Rachael71

Canal Grande, Venice: 205 reviews and 361 photos

  The Grand Canal, entering the Lagoon
by Rachael71

The number one traghetto is the long, circular route that goes all the way down the Grand Canal, out to the Lido, and then back again up to the ferry area and down the Grand Canal again. It's a long trip - over an hour I guess - but well worth taking the time to do at least once. Just sit back and admire the stunning palazzos that line the Grand Canal, and take in the waterside views of the Doges Palace and the Salute. Well worth spending the time - make sure you have plenty of camera film to hand!
