        How can you rate canal cities & omit Saint Petersburg.
        Wander through the water or on land, & view the pretty pastel coloured buildings, monuments, & castles. Not to be left out is the ugliest monument to Peter ever!
        The city is a delight for any tourist interest. Museums? The Hermitage, Castles? Peterhoff, The Peter fortress & beautiful parks everywhere.

            We agree that St. Petersburg is amazing -- it's included in our slideshow, linked above!

              Amsterdam is by far my favorite! Though I did enjoy Venice too.

                  Yes, love Venice and Amsterdam.....but for real canal cruising, we like to hire a narrow boat for a week or two (can take the dog!), and drift along the british canal network....it's really slow travel, but you're away from the rest of the world, sometimes sailing high above motorways or rivers. Lots of old pubs to eat in, and lovely old locks to man handle....I'd like to do the Great Glen in Scotland next. Birmingham is unusual, because you're often sailing underneath parts of the old industrial city.

                    How can you call yourselves a travel site and have left off Stockholm from a list of canal cities? It's been known as the Venice of the North for a hundred years or more.

                        Well as far as canal cities concern I would say St Petersburg in one of my favourite, because it has wonderful sights.

                          We love Venice but, in truth, it's the only Canal city we've seen (twice). We will be spending time in Amsterdam this summer.

                            Been to both Amsterdam and Venice. I'm going back to Amsterdam in a week. Actions speak louder than words.
