A city without cars needs a highway. That is what the Grand Canal is for Venice. Via this undulating waterway, you'll see a bevy of boats, water taxis and gondolas transporting tourists and locals to and fro. Along the historic banks, you’ll see centuries-old palaces and dome-topped churches rise. Many reflect the City of Bridges' unequaled East-meets-West architectural style -- Venetian Gothic. Note the Asian motifs and elegantly ornate characteristics in palaces like Ca' D'Oro.
