"The Grand Canal overflowing at the Palazzo Ducale" Canal Grande Tip by zrim

Canal Grande, Venice: 202 reviews and 354 photos


Ah, the wonderful sinking city of Venice. Flooding is a way of life, especially during the time we visited in November. The warning sirens signaling the high water blared a couple times a day. But no matter. A fortified spirit makes the day enjoyable anyway. Plus it is a sight to see the resilient Venecians go on about their business in hip high waders.
