Venice might be better known for its canals, but don't forget to explore its winding streets for what many might consider a local's perspective. Here are five fun facts to bear in mind.
Venetian houses tend to face the canal, so many of its haphazard streets arose simply as gaps between buildings. The narrowest is Ramo Varisco, at only 53cm wide!
Venice's church towers, or "campanili," do more than just sound the hour - they've historically also been used as lighthouses and fire guard stations.
Think you won't see enough of Venice's canals on a walking tour? Think again! The city has 431 bridges to traverse. The Rialto Bridge dates back to the 16th century.
Despite having over 400 gondoliers in a tradition that dates back centuries, Venice didn't get a female gondolier until 2010!
Visit the Palazzo Loredan to see the birthplace of Elena Lucrezia Cornaro Piscopia, who, in 1678, received a Doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Padua.
Walking tours are a great way to see the city, but it wouldn't be Venice without a ride along the city's canals. Fortunately there are several walking and gondola tour combination packages to choose from, with prices starting from €43.
If you're visiting Venice on the cheap then you might choose to opt for a free walking tour. Perhaps unsurprisingly, there is a catch! Remember your guide does this for a living so bring some cash in order to pay what you think it was worth at the end. If you don't, be prepared to shuffle away sheepishly!

What People Are Saying About Venice
The islands covered on the trip were all very beautiful - good use of short time we had with us.
I strongly recommend this tour. On the day we did it the general queue was very long and if we had had to stand in line it would have taken up a lot of our valuable time in Venice. It all worked perfectly and the guide was very knowledgable and informative. The Bascilica is just breathtaking! Well worth seeing. I recommend this tour.
We really enjoyed our stay in Venice and especially the guided tour that gave us a bright overview of the history of the city.
We had a great time. She explained everything in detail and was very knowledgeable. I've been to Venice several times, but did not notice all the things our guide pointed out.
We had a lovely time. Our group of 6 got along famously. The guide Allesandra was a gem!
