The canals are breath-taking and the absolute best way to see them is on the water. The public transport boats (Vaporetto) allows you to see everthing. Buy a day-ticket (giornalero) instead of individual tickets.
For timetables, routes, lines etc. of the Vaporetto see the website of Actv. http://www.actv.it
Venice hosts one of the best carnivals in the world. This occurs sometime during February. People dress up and their costumes are wonderful (in the afternoon they pose for photos on the St. Mark's Square). In this period there are also many activities going on. http://www.carnivalofvenice.com
