Greet Venice with a morning cruise along the Grand Canal from Ferrovia to San Zaccaria. You'll treasure seeing Piazza San Marco for the first time from the water, as centuries of travelers have done before you.

Take the traghetto in Campo Santa Maria del Giglio or cross the Grand Canal via Accademia Bridge. Bear left to reach Santa Maria della Salute, with over a dozen Titian paintings, and Punta della Dogana, one of the best panoramas in town.
Top off your afternoon with Peggy Guggenheim's 20th-century collection, or let centuries of Venetian art at Gallerie dell'Accademia show you how this city has changed through the ages. Stretch your legs at sunset with a walk along the Zattere, accompanied by a gelato.
