The requisite gondolas, and they aren't completely just for tourists. Although the Grand Canal is about twice as long as the city is wide because it describes a big backwards S shape, there are only 3 bridges across the whole thing. One way to cross without walking a km or two out of your way to a bridge and back again is to go to one of the designated gondola crossings and pay a gondolier to take you straight across.
