New York City
venice; canal or street view?
The Giudecca island is part of the city but with a more authentic flavor (fewer tourists, fewer monuments, more locals).
Chioggia is at the south end of the laguna. It is a miniature replica of Venise. It is obviously very calm because out of all tourist circuits.
Visit museums in Venice is one of the best things during holidays.
Saint Mark's Basilica offer includes skipping the line entry to the basilica and St Mark’s museum

Hi Agnes! Definitely agree with the previous answers! Also, take into consideration how claustrophobic you get. My husband and I did a street view and it was very beautiful but tight. My husband also felt as though he needed more space. Some people we met while there had the canal view and it was gorgeous, sitting on their balcony, people watching, drinking wine. They definitely felt more open air then ours. If you can splurge on the canal view, do it!
If you can afford it, choose a room with a view of a canal. The smaller the canal, the less expensive the room is apt to be. If you have a room on a small canal, you will wake to the sound of motorboats chugging along the canal, gondoliers getting their gondolas ready for the day, and people going about their daily lives as they walk along the canal pushing handcarts delivering goods to stores or going shopping or to work.
There are no streets in Venice just canals, maybe some squares where the people hang out and kids play.
if you can afford the grand canal then take it.
It won't matter. Both are enchanting. If you have a canal view, you will see lots of streets as you wander. If you have a street view you will see lots of canals as you wander. I suppose the only exception would be if you can have a view of the Grand Canal so you might actually want to spend time in your rooming watching the canal traffic. That will get old after an hour, so don't pay too much.
