The Grand Canal in Venice Italy
The Grand Canal, Venice Italy
The Grand Canal in Venice Italy forms one of the major water-traffic corridors in the city of Venice. The canal is a natural channel that traces a reverse-S course from St. Mark's Basilica to Santa Chiara Church and divides the city into two parts. The canal is slightly more then 2 miles (3 km) long and beween 100 and 125 feet (30 to 70 meters) wide. It has an average depth of 17 feet (5 meters) and connects at various points with a maze of smaller canals. Public transport is provided by water buses (Italian: vaporetti) and private wtaer taxis. May tourists also explore the Grand Canal by gondola. We made many, many trips to Venice but our last tirp had to have been the best.
