S: Italian Daydreams

FC: 2010

1: Venice | Best of Venice, Florence and Rome in 10 Days September 2010 | From Venice, California to Venice, Italy. It's a LONG flight, but all is forgotten with your first glimpse of Venice in the sun...or the clouds...or the rain. It really doesn't matter. It's a gorgeous, unique, historical, fun city...

2: DAY 1 Welcome to Italy There are only two ways to get around Venice -- on foot or on the water.

4: The view from a Vaporetto

6: HOW TO RIDE A VAPORETTO (Venetian water taxi) There are seats, but STAND, and make your way to an outside railing. You'll be rewarded with glimpses of daily life that will surprise and delight you. They'll make you take your backpack off so they can cram more beautiful Venetians in -- don't fight it! And smile at everyone.

7: The Grand Canal
