Best Euro Canal Fantasy Web Location

Lets say I wanted to make my wife fall in love with the idea of cruising the canals of Europe. What is the very best web site to go to and linger over?

Not that I would do such a thing.

Take a look at Tom Sommers guides. The book/pdf is a great resource, and gives options as well as data on the canals themselves
