Canal Grande

Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces.
The Grand Canal (Canal Grande) in the photo is a main water channel in Venice. It forms one of the major water-traffic corridors in the city.
