If you are looking for a casual stroll or a peaceful kayak ride you can find it tucked away in Naples Canal. The concept, developed in the early 1900s, was planned as an “Italian style resort village with canals and gondola rides.” This is a great backdrop for an early morning walk or a sunset stroll. Enjoy meandering along the sidewalks with views of quaint waterways, beautiful homes and inviting landscapes. You may even want to enjoy a glass of wine and cheese platter while taking in the sites on a Gondola ride. If you are more adventurous, you can rent kayaks in the summer and paddle your way through the canals. During the winter holidays, put on a scarf and a hat and enjoy the beautifully decorated homes while you sip on some hot cocoa. This area is dog friendly and the paved sidewalk with the option of steps or inclined ramps makes it easy to navigate.
