How to get around in Venice, Italy

boat taxis in Venice
When you visit Venice be prepared to walk a lot. There are canals everywhere with bridges and stairs.
And no cars.
Aside from Gondolas and the Vaparetto (public transportation boats) these vintage wood boats are the main type of transportation in Venice. They fit easily under bridges when the tide is high and go fast when they are not is the small canals. This is most likely a taxi :) They remind me of a James bond movie.
