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
Michaela, our guide, was informative, friendly and good fun. Saw places we wouldn't have done and went to places that the locals go to. Would definitely recommend.
Our guide Matteo was very informative and seemed to know a lot of history and detail about Venice. Although the gondola is quite touristic, it s a must when in Venice.
Thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Francesca, we learnt so much, and really got a feel for the city and its inhabitants.
Excellent guide, with a lot of humor and knowledge about the city architecture and the historical monuments :):):) Amazing !!!
The islands covered on the trip were all very beautiful - good use of short time we had with us.
