Italy Things to Do: 1,470 reviews and 2,257 photos


Venice?s major waterway, the Grand Canal bisects the whole city. Running from the railway station to San Marco, it is shaped like an upside down ?S?. It is almost 4kms long and 5 metres deep with the average width being 50 metres. Gondolas and crafts of every size and shape travel the canal, making at times a heavily congested waterway.

A unique sight with its banks lined with an incredible line up of medieval palaces and churches.

Address: Grand Canal, Venice

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
