Venice is also considered to be one of the most important tourist destination in the world considering its art, culture and architecture. Some of its sights include the Piazza San Marco (St. Mark's Square) where the St. Mark's Basilica is located, also a worth to see, the Grand Canal and many others.
During my first and second visit in Venice, I did not experience a Gondola ride. That is one of the reasons why I came back to Venice last year. It is one of the many ways to explore Venice especially its many canals around the city. It was fun and I truly enjoyed it.
these images were taken while we were riding a Gondola in Venice last July 2011. You can see the Ducal or Doge's Palace on the left side of the photos here. You can also see the Campanile tower of St. Mark's basilica on this picture.
