From personal experience...at sunset sit on the steps in front of Santa Maria della Salute in the Dorsoduro section with a gelato, and watch the world go by on the Grande Canal.

I don't think so! Rome has banned eating at tourist sites until the end of October: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25707616

Recently i took a walk around the paths that border the lagoon, starting at San Marco and going east (i guess) all the way to the tip of the main island Venice is on and then around and back up the other side - this goes thru a quiet area of town and a even a real neighborhood - with kids playing, parks, etc. Great views over the lagoon from the tip - benches for a great picnic spot.

Well, yes... but S. Maria della Salute is still in Venice, not Rome, mind you!
