Things to know about Grand Canal

The Grand Canal is the main canal of Venice, long more than three miles. It consists in the major water-traffic in the city and its route bisects the historic centre of Venice.
 
Developed in the 9th century, the Grand Canal has been for centuries the centre of commercial life in the city. Along the trail are still visible today the "fondaco" houses, typical buildings combining the warehouse and the merchant's residence, used to allow the docking of boats.
 
Today, the Grand Canal is traversed by numerous boats: the typical Venetian gondola, but also the boats and ferries. Every year in September, it is held a historic race between Venetian boats, which attracts crowds of locals and tourists.
