Grand Canal is the one of the greatest sight-seeing spots in Venice, Italy and today, I will be taking you on a journey along the length of the Grand Canal and I will be share with you about my exceptional personal experience of this great voyage. Moreover, Grand canal is not only a scenic location but also works as a transport channel for millions and millions of tourist visitors that visit this place yearly and they are considered as the main means of transport in this hottest historic location and in further, you could also use this water transport as a water taxi or water bus or gondola.
Furthermore, if you want to explore Venice in a fun full yet in a majestic way, then riding onto gondolas along the banks of Grand Canal is a must and the surprising part is that there are several parking spots for gondolas that runs right across the main attractions; plus, gondolas are the specialty of this locale and hence, who wouldn’t love to go on for a ride?
These are some of the best captures on the central part of the Grand Canal where you could explicitly see several number of historic buildings which dates back centuries before in the range of 13th to 18th century old and these great architectural landmarks were once occupied by the noble Venetian families and even today, one could clearly able to see their true reflection of enormous amount of wealth and culture that were associated along with them.
This bustling atmosphere starts from dawn to dusk everyday and the crowded water taxis and speed boats are just a real pleasure to watch and ride and the most amazing part is that the old Venetians were not only interested in showing off their architectural excellence in just buildings alone but also extended their abilities and functional capabilities onto the connecting bridges too.
Look at the centuries old strong bridge and their adjoining historic territories set as the background and doesn’t it look amazing? And, one more additional fact that I want to share along with you is that there are nearly 425 bridges that is standing along elegantly from centuries and centuries long until now along the Grand Canal. WOW! Besides, you could also visit an innumerable number of churches and towers all across the corridors of Grand Canal and it is a great way to spend in your lovely sunny afternoons.
Besides too, you could also able to see some awesome Venetian iron balconies and large domed windows when you ride along the Grand Canal and in further, Venice is the only place where speeds boats take their pride to drop in and out of tourists to various hotels that is spread along the banks of the Grand Canal and this is the only way to get into the hotel too and anyway, you could also see exactly the same in the picture as a visual interpretation of what I said right now.
Lastly, this picture also gives us an evidential proof of the hustle and bustle of Venice that is crowded by the local people and tourists all year around and these hardworking boatman gives us the handful of much-needed ride everyday and hats off to their immense dedication of work.
