Canal Grande, Venice: 205 reviews and 361 photos
The two principal waterways of the city are the Canal Grande (Grand Canal) and the Canale della Giudecca.
The Grand Canal divides Venice into two parts which were once called 'de citra' (this side) and 'de ultra' (the other side), from the point of view of Saint Mark's. The two parts are connected by the Rialto bridge, the most ancient and, since the 16th century, made of stone; the wooden Accademia bridge, bult in 1854; and the bridge at the railway station, built more recently, in 1932, and also of stone.
