The Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. It forms one of the major water-traffic corridors in the city. Public transport is provided by water buses and private water taxis, and many tourists explore the canal by gondola. One end of the canal leads into the lagoon near the Santa Lucia railway station and the other end leads into Saint Mark Basin; in between, it makes a large reverse-S shape through the central districts of Venice. It is 3.8 km long, and 30 to 90 m wide, with an average depth of five meters (16.5 ft).

This is Venice: a Tour, on Day 3 of our 12 day journey across northern and central Italy. Venice is a city of water, built on more than a hundred islands, with bridges, but no roads. Today we arrive in this medieval city in a lagoon, ride a boat the length of the Grand Canal, find ourselves a great hotel, feed pigeons in front of St. Mark’s Basilica, ascend to the top of the Campanile bell tower for a great view over the red-brown roofs, cruise around the island city at sunset, and listen to dueling orchestras in St. Mark’s Square after dark.
Cruise on Vaporetti numero uno along Venice's Grand Canal, the canal of all canals. A fantastic journey through the heart of Renaissance architecture including highlights such as the Casa d'Oro, St Mark's Square and the Ponte Rialto. The Vaporetti is the standard mode of water transport for the Venetian public. You buy a ticket and validate it at one of the machines before you board. A bit crowded and noisy, but the best way to see Venice at a relaxed pace. It's also an opportunity to get close up to a hot (not) gondolier in action without having to pay through the nose!
