A great experience sailing up the Grand Canal with all of the activity around you including water taxis, gondolas, speed boats, water buses, canoes, kayaks, you name it. We even saw a Chinese Dragon boat while traveling up the canal. An inexpensive way of doing this is to use the water buses. Yes they are slower and they do stop at all of the stops, but remember you are on holiday and this gives you more time to appreciate your surroundings. Traveling up the Grand Canal is unlike anything we have experienced before and it is actually difficult to describe in words. The diversity of buildings, people and boats makes this a once in a lifetime experience. Not to be missed.
