Shop around The Grand Canal Shops which lead into St Mark's Square.
Try a gondola ride. We tried the outdoor one which was 10 minutes and $12.50. The indoor rides are 15 minutes and a couple dollars more. I had no idea that the gondoliers serenade you in Italian. Our gondolier, Aldo, had a beautiful voice but all the ones that I overheard sounded wonderful as well. I got goosebumps when we passed under a small bridge and Aldo's voice strengthened with the reverberation.
Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum is also on the premises, but I did not visit, having seen the London version and not having the time.

Our gondolier was a handsome young man with a beautiful singing voice. Although we were partial to "our" young man, we heard many beautiful voices as we watched and listened to other gondoliers perform.
Same-day reservations are accepted; the ride wait was approximately half an hour. The gondola seats four people; parties of two or less must share with another party. However, it was not a very busy day, so we had our own gondola for the two of us. Private gondolas can be requested, at $60 for the indoor gondola ride and $50 for the outdoor gondola ride.
The ride is open from 10am to 11pm Sun-Thurs. and 10am to midnight Fri. and Sat. The outdoor ride operates on a weather-permitting basis.

A picture was taken and we could purchase the photos at a reasonable price. I think we got two for $20 (we were in two Gondolas with five people). Only four people to a Gondola. It was like a city within a city. The sky looked very real and I was wondering what the little rings were until I realized it was a dome and those were the supports that held it up. There were houses and shops all along the canal. There were flowers and music and delighted laughter. This was loud or raucus like the Adventuredome at Circus Circus. This was relaxing and a joy for adults and children.
