Grand Canal

The Grand Canal is so beautiful and such a tourist hot spot.

This ancient waterway measures 3,800 meters (2.36 miles) long and ranges from 30 to 90 meters (about 100-300 feet) wide. In most places, the canal is approximately 5 meters (16 feet) deep. It has many shops around it and is the waterway and path for everyone to travel around the city. I took a Gondola ride which was just magical as it went through all the narrow water paths.

The interior of the Gondolas are ancient and vintage. This make a perfect romantic ride through the city and you pass all the bridges. The ride is for 25mins and can cost you 80 euros but I would definitely haggle as they will drop the price.
