Visitors drawn by the city's iconic canals will find troves of things to do in Venice, in and out of a gondola. You'll find many different ways to experience Canal Grande, the city's major transportation corridor flanked by buildings erected between the 13th and 18th centuries. Basilica di San Marco's giant arches, steeples, and horse statues remain outstanding examples of Byzantine architecture in Italy--they're worth a look even if you're not an architecture buff. Don't forget to give Venusian cuisine a taste for a chance to enjoy some amazing seafood specialties, such as vermicelli with black squid ink.
