Grand Canal – the Historic Water Corridor in Venice, Italy

The main water-traffic corridor in Venice stretches through the whole city. The 3800 m (12467 ft) long canal can be explored by water buses, water taxes and gondolas – the tourists’ favorite transportation. It even can be seen from space.

The houses on the banks of Grand Canal were built from the 13th to the 18th centuries and demonstrate the glory of the city, when it was run by the wealthy Venetian families. The canal indeed reflects the impeccable style and atmosphere of beautiful Venice.

Why to go there: Venice is one of the main jewels in Italy.
When to go there?: Go there on the first Sunday of September, when an annual Regata ‘Storica – a display of antique boats – takes place. The event also features several exciting races.
