A leisurely cruise along the Grand Canal is one of life’s must-do experiences. in the late afternoon, the elements-worn colors of the former homes of Venice’s merchant elites are warmed by golden light and reflected in the canal’s rippling waters. The busy traffic of delivery boats, vaporetti and gondolas that fill the day’s main thoroughfare is somewhat eased. The sheer number and opulence of the 200-odd palazzi, churches, and imposing republican buildings is a sight to remember.
