The same goes for signage.

We never rode in a gondola because they were very expensive, but we saw plenty of them around! Some were very basic, other quite lavish with costumed gondoliers who might serenade you as they guide you through the romantic canals.
Piazza San Marco was the main hub of tourist activity. We did not pay to go inside any of the large buildings, but fully appreciated their exteriors.
It was a perfectly lovely city to see, and we did find some fun things to do, as you will see in upcoming posts...
