Looking South on the Grand Canal from the top of the Rialto Bridge in Venice, Italy.

Virtually all commerce is conducted on the water, almost all the necessities of life are moved around by boat. Venetians and tourists mingle as they each go about their business.

Water traffic can be chaotic here with Gondolas, Water Taxis, “Vaporettos(Click here)”:":http://www.aviewoncities.com/venice/vaporetto.htm, Ferries, Speedboats and even Rowboats trying to make headway in the crowded canal.

The whole of Venice and its Lagoon is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
