Walking (incl. city maps), Venice
As everyone who has been to Venice rightly says, the best way to explore Venice is on foot. And man... you are going to do some walking!!!!
But it's worthy! You will see so many canals and buildings and marvellous windows to last you a lifetime.
Start anywhere and let yourself get lost in the small 'calles', turn left when you're sure it should be right - that's more fun. And don't worry you won't get lost.
This is probably the most comfortable way of getting around Venice.
(By the way: It takes years to become a professional clown. An early start is a must)
The best way to see Venice is on foot. In this way you can explore even its most hidden places and get to know the city better.
