Road Trip Through Switzerland, Italy & Austria - 6

Venice, Italy

....continued from 'Part 5'

The next day (after visiting Vicenza), we planned on going to Venice, as that was one of the main places that we wanted to visit, on this trip. It ain't so far from Vicenza (60 kms), but as we drove through the country side (looking around some interesting things), it took around 2 hours, for us to reach Venice.

Venice is a set of small islands in a lagoon/laguna. All the transportation for Venice is water borne, as it is full of canals and no roads. So, if you want to travel to/from Venice, you would have to use the 'Venice Water Bus System' or one of those Gondola's/Vaporetto's/Water Taxi's.

After reaching Venice, we parked the car at one of those building's exclusively built for parking..and which is expensive, as there is huge demand for parking, all the time. After parking, we got the tickets to go to Venice (by the Water Bus System) and I was pretty excited that I'm visiting this place, as I heard and read about this place, since I was a kid. It was pretty hot and humid, but the excitement of visiting Venice, interesting architecture and the beauty of that place, kept me pretty excited. Here's a video that I shot, at Venice (on the way to the central stop of Venice):

After we reached the main/central stop of Venice, we walked all around Venice and looked at many interesting things. There were lot of visitors around this place and many shops/restaurants are great rip-off points, as everything they sell there is pretty expensive. Below are some more pics, that I shot, when we walked all around Venice:
