Grand Canal - Review

Nearly four kilometres long, this canal is the lifeline of Venice’s water traffic (of private boats, vaporetti (water buses), and the gondolas), and one of the prettiest sights in this pretty city. It’s supposed to follow the course of an ancient river, and the area near the Rialto Bridge is supposed to be one of the first sites colonised around the river. Speaking of bridges, the canal has four: Rialto, the Ponte Degli Scalzi, the Ponte dell'Accademia and the Calatrava Bridge; the last of these is new, but the former three are historical and architectural treasures in their own right.

The canal, as you see it today, has been forming over the last thousand years, as it’s been a historically important trading stop. The 170 buildings that line its sides show the stunning architectural evolution of Europe! – Byzantine, Gothic, Renaissance, Classical and Baroque! And the fantastic piazzas aren’t’ to be missed.

The annual Regatta Storica and the accompanying boat parades are some of the grandest sights Venice has to offers – so do drop in on the first Sunday of September. Waterbuses and gondolas are the perennial favourite ways to get along the canal.
