Candlelit Dinner in Venice

Venice, Italy

Best way to navigate the maze-like city of Venice? If you've never done it, indulge in a gondola ride. These traditional boats, lorded over by striped-shirted gondolieri who sometimes sing, cost around $125 for 40 minutes. Rather save a penny? Make like a local and board a traghetto -- an oversized gondola that residents use to ferry across the Grand Canal. The price? Less than $1 a ride.
