Google's Street View has taken us all the way up (to the Burj Khalifa) and all the way down (to the Great Barrier Reef), so where else is there to go but the world's most romantic city? That's right, the search giant has taken its backpack-worn Trekker units to Venice, letting you explore its canals, tight streets and hundreds of connecting bridges from the comfort of your home or office. In its behind-the-scenes look, Google lets you see how the city has changed since 1838 with the help of a 175-year-old street map and explore locations that inspired famous works of art. If punting was never your thing, hit up Google Street View to begin your personal guided tour -- minus the unique odor.
