"boats and gondolas" Vaporetto - Water Bus Tip by CptCrunch767

Vaporetto - Water Bus, Venice: 167 reviews and 244 photos

one of the best ways to see venice is by boat, and one of the best ways to get to venice is by boat so it works out very well in that regard. also id encourage everyone to take a gondola ride they are a great way to see some of the areas few get to see. like how the houses there are built where you can step off a boat onto the front porch and back in the smaller cannals you can find remarkable bridges that you would otherwise miss. its also one thing seeing the bridge when your on it but anouther to see it from a different perspecitve from the water. id also try to take a gondola ride about an hour or two before sunset as there will be fantastic cast shawdows and reflected light off the sides of buildings, pictures you take during this time will reflect more in the water, the boat traffic isnt as heavy and as we all know its the "golden hour" for photo taking.
