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

Water traffic is chaotic here with Gondolas, Water Taxis, Vaporettos, Ferries, Speedboats and even Rowboats trying to make headway in the crowded canal. Moored watercraft line the banks.

The buildings lining the canal are a fascinating mix of styles.

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