Along the Grand Canal

This was our first view of Venice when we walked out of the train station. The bridge is the Ponte Dei Sospiri and crosses the Grand Canal by the station. Almost all Venice visitors enter the city here or from the nearby car park.

This is our water "taxi". Note the bigger canal "busses".

Church near the train station.
