The Grand Canal

Not to be mistaken for the canal you see in Las Vegas, this is the real thing. More than 170 buildings, most of which date back to the 13th to the 18th century, face the canal. The boat ride through the Grand Canal was definitely short-lived. Each building was rich with history and beauty, I wouldn't mind just sitting and hearing about each of them. I will go back one of these days and do just that.
