    Last time, we took a bus boat from the outer river to the island. This time, we chose eight speedboats to go to the inner river to the island. The weather was fine and the scenery was beautiful all the way. The Grand Canal of Venice is Canale Grande in Italian. The main waterway of Venice, Italy. The city is divided into two parts along the natural waterway, from San Marco Basilica to Santa Chiara Church. It is more than 3 kilometers (2 miles) long and 30.70 meters (100.225 feet) wide, with an average depth of 5 meters (17 feet), and is connected to many small canals. Municipal transportation mostly passes through these waterways. Venice has a main canal 4 kilometers long and 30 60 meters wide, which is connected with 177 tributaries. The whole city consists of 118 small islands. There are more than 2,300 lanes in the city. Venice's houses are uniquely built, and the foundations are submerged in the water, as if they were drilled out of the water. The Venice Grand Canal is known as the Water "Champs Elysees" Avenue in Venice. On both sides of the river, there are various ancient buildings, including Rococo palaces, Moorish houses and, of course, many magnificent Baroque and Gothic churches. During the Renaissance, many great artists left immortal murals and oil paintings in these churches, which still attract numerous tourists and artists from all over the world. In addition, stores, markets and banks across the canal have added endless vitality to the waterborne metropolis.

    Venice is famous for its water city. The canal is the soul of the city. All the waterways throughout the city and in all directions are the vessels of the Grand Canal, which maintains the traffic and life of the whole city. When you have time, you can sit in Gondola and enjoy the scenery of the water country which is different from the Wupeng boat.

On both sides of the Grand Canal are magnificent buildings such as palaces, churches, hotels, Roman, Gothic and Renaissance. There are three bridges built on the river, with the famous Rialto Bridge in the middle. We visited the Grand Canal in Gondola. It was a great trip.

    Venice is a world-famous water city. The Grand Canal is the main waterway of Venice. It is connected with many small canals. Most of the transportation in the city passes through these waterways. Gondola is a beautiful boat with local characteristics, just like the private car we usually drive. It is said that the cost of one year's boat maintenance in Gondola is equal to the cost of the last luxury car.
