The most important canal in Venice, the Grand Canal divides the city into two parts, crossing the historic center of the most famous Marine Republic in the world.
Drawing an inverted “S”, his path starts from the Ponte della Libertà and ends after about 3.8 km, leaving behind the Palazzo Ducale, the ancient seat of the Doge and the judiciary. It is flanked by the most fascinating and historic buildings of Venice: Casa Minotti, Palazzo Emo Diedo, Church of Santa Maria di Nazareth, Casa Nigra, Palazzo Flangini, Fondaco dei Turchi, Ca ‘Pesaro and many others, without forgetting the magnificent bridges that cross it : the Rialto bridge, the Accademia, the Scalzi, the Constitution and Liberty. The most curious feature that distinguishes it, is that all the buildings on the sides rise directly on the water, without having a sidewalk that divides them. Striking and unique in its style, the Grand Canal is one of the most sought tourist destinations and most remembered by those who sailed it.
Passing through Venice is a mandatory destination, even better if reached by gondola!
