Grand Canal

Local nameCanal Grande
LocationVenice, Italy

The largest canal in Venice which secures more than a half of all water transport in Venice. It runs from San Mark Basin and ends in the lagoon. It is nearly four kilometers long (its width differs).

You can travel up and down the canal either by water public transport, private water taxis or by the stylish gondolas. From the water, you can see all the imposing buildings (there are nearly 200 of them built along the edges of the Grand Canal). The beautiful mixture of architectonical styles – Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque or even modern – is truly an impressive experience.

If you travel to Venice during the summer, be prepared for crowds of tourists on the canal.
