Canal Rolled Canvas Prints

Canal Rolled Canvas Prints Grand Canal is the main waterway of Venice, Italy, following a natural channel that traces a reverse-S course from San Marco Basilica to Santa Chiara Church and divides the city into two parts. It forms one of the major water-traffic corridors in the city. 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. The canal is an ancient waterway, lined with buildings, about 170 in all, that were mostly built from the thirteenth to the eighteenth centuries. Most were constructed by wealthy Venetian families. These waterways carry the bulk of Venetian transportation, as automobiles are banned throughout much of the city. Siren-equipped boats belonging to the police, fire, and emergency medical services traverse the Grand Canal at high speed, and barges are responsible for the delivery of goods throughout the city. The Grand Canal probably follows the course of an ancient river flowing into the lagoon. It is believed that the Grand Canal follows the course of an ancient river. One of the first settlements in the area grew along the canal around the area of the current Rialto Bridge. The best way to view the magnificent buildings along the Grand Canal, of course, is to travel by vaporetto from one end to the other. The Grand Canal is bridged at four points. The oldest, and easily the most famous, span is the Rialto Bridge.
