Canals of Venice
The Grand Canal
A canal in Venice
The other three canals are Giudecca, Canneregio and Scomenzera. Venice’s canals used to be – and still nowadays are – the real streets of the city: transportation used to move mainly on water thanks to the typical Venetian gondolas, which are small and flat-bottomed for moving better through the narrow and shallow canals.
Nowadays, such boats are just used for tourism, so you can enjoy a picturesque tour of the city on board the world-famous symbol of Venice.
