  Canal Grande
by myriam_c

From the 177 canal that criss-cross the city of Venice, the Canal Grande is to venice what the Main Street is to any other city. Canal Grande is 4 km long and winds in two curves through the city. Along Canal Grande you will see a long chain of the most beautiful palazzi.

Canal Grande has a lot of traffic: vaporetti (water buses), gondolas, water taxi's, small ferry's, police boats, barges with articles for the market, etc. It's like any busy street.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
