Considered to be the main street of Venice, the Grand Canal is always busy with boats. Dado Daniela Getty Images

Travelers say that the Grand Canal should be visited twice: once during the day to see the action of the city and once during the night to feel the romantic allure that Venice is so famous for. IakovKalinin Getty Images

The Rialto Bridge is so beautiful, travelers recommend seeing it from all angles by crossing it, walking along the Grand Canal and if you have the time and cash, floating under it via gondola.  compassandcamera iStockphoto.com

Piazza San Marco is beautiful, but because of the amount of popular attractions there (Doge's Palace, Museo Correr, Campanile di San Marco and Saint Mark's Basilica), it is always crowded. Plan to tour the area early in the morning or later in the evening to beat the crowds. All Rights Reserved- Copyright Getty Images

Gondolas have become a must-do when visiting Venice. Although many go to the Grand Canal to catch a ride, veteran visitors suggest searching for more off-the-beaten path pickup points for a cheaper price. Pauline Lewis Getty Images

During a period of acqua alta, water from the canals overflows onto the streets. This happens when abnormally high tides coincide with warm winds. Although people have credited this to the theory that Venice is sinking, it's a normal seasonal occurance for Venetians. RnDms Getty Images

As suggested by its name, the Gallerie dell'Accademia was once a school. Although ultimately transformed into a museum by Napolean, he did keep the school for a short while, hanging up artworks he collected from other churches and institutions around the city to serve as inspirations for the students.

If you're looking to escape the crowds surrounding the Grand Canal, look no further than the Jewish Ghetto.

Even if you're not interested in shopping at T Fondaco dei Tedeschi, Venice's glitzy department store, visitors say you should still make a trip to enjoy the rooftop, which offers stunning views of Venice. Plus, it's free.
