"Canal Grande" Canal Grande Tip by PetraG

Canal Grande, Venice: 202 reviews and 354 photos

  Canale Grande
by PetraG

The Grand Chanel is the "mainstreet" of Venice. Hundrest of boats, ferries and gondolas go there every day. There are three big bridges leading over it One of them is the famous Rialto bridge.
Along the Grand Chanel you can admire the most beautiful buildings of Venice (called "case").
I absolutely recommend you to do a ride along the Grand Chanel once by day and once by night. You'll see, it's a totally different atmosphere...
