The Grand Canal , in the Venetian town of Canałazzo , is a main waterway in the lagoon city of Venice, almost four kilometers long, between 30 and 70 meters wide and up to five meters deep . The first bend in the S-shaped canal is called the Volta di Canal .

It is the last part of the northern arm of the Brenta River , which runs through the lagoon , which is why the water here, unlike the other Venetian canals, always flows. Around 45 smaller canals ( Rii in Italian ) flow into the Grand Canal.


The Grand Canal separates the citra (on this side) -Stadtsechstel ( Sestieri ) San Marco , Cannaregio and Castello by lying on the right side channel ultra (beyond) -Stadtteilen Dorsoduro , San Polo and Santa Croce .

Bridges and gondolas

There are currently four bridges spanning the canal, the oldest of which is the Rialto Bridge . It is a covered bridge in limestone built towards the end of the 16th century instead of a wooden bridge .

Until the Scalzi Bridge and the Accademia Bridge were built in the 19th century (both renewed in the 20th century), the Rialto Bridge was the only permanent connection across the canal.

In the summer of 2007, the construction of a fourth bridge based on designs by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava began. On August 11, 2007, the middle section of the load-bearing structure was installed. To this end, the Grand Canal was closed for several hours. On September 11, 2008, the bridge was inaugurated as the " Ponte della Costituzione ". The 94-meter-long bridge with steps enables commuters and bus travelers to get to Santa Lucia train station directly from the parking lots and the bus station in Piazzale Roma.

In addition to the bridges and the urban vaporetti , gondolas ( traghetti in Italian ) allow people to cross the Grand Canal in eight places. The gondolas only run during the day.

Loss of historical buildings, including the church of Santa Lucia, had to be recorded in the 19th century when the train station was built at the western end of the canal. In memory of the demolished church, the station was called Stazione Ferroviaria Santa Lucia .

In the Grand Canal is an administrative fine reinforced bathing ban is strictly enforced.


The Grand Canal is lined with over 200 magnificent aristocratic palaces. In Venice, the height of the palaces was dictated by numerous regulations of the city ​​republic and everyone accepted this. Here, too, compared to other Italian cities, there was a strong common spirit that overlaid individual interests. The opposite example are the gender towers in other cities, with which the individual families tried to outdo each other.

Palaces on the Grand Canal

After the great Fourth Crusade of 1204 , in the course of which the Venetians took rich booty, the formerly wooden houses were initially replaced by stone buildings in the Byzantine style. From the 15th century onwards, they were gradually replaced by magnificent palaces - in the Gothic , Renaissance and Baroque styles . Byzantine elements have been preserved in a few buildings, but can still be seen in the tracery forms of the Gothic windows.

Palazzo Loredan, Palazzo Farsetti , both with water level, piano nobile, another simple upper floor and mezzanine

The distance between the palaces and the Grand Canal was sometimes greater in the early and high Middle Ages. It was not until the 13th century that the buildings, which were built on many small islands, began to be extended towards the canal and the courtyard was moved to the rear. At the same time, the main facade was moved towards the water, which previously faced the land side. Contrary to popular belief, the palaces of the most famous families were not on the Grand Canal, but in larger and smaller squares or on side canals.

The stones for these palaces were mainly brought in from the mainland, especially from Verona (red marble) and from Istria (white limestone marble). All building material, including bricks for walls and roofs, as well as vast amounts of wood, had to be brought in from outside, sometimes over hundreds of kilometers, as nothing was naturally available in Venice.

Arbor on a palace

The palaces are often very different in size, but all of them are laid out according to the same construction principle - a dominant central section and laterally subordinate wings. The facade, which is opened by large windows, and the preference for light over solid construction is also a result of the need not to be able to build too heavy houses on unsafe, often sandy ground in the middle of the lagoon. All of Venice's buildings are built on scaffolding made of thousands of oak piles that were driven many meters into the ground. The interior arrangement of the rooms can usually be read on the facade. This shows the builders' centuries of experience that the fundamental element of Venice is water, the light reflections of which should reflect into the rooms.

The lower floor, the water floor, was open to accommodate the goods brought in by the ships. This entire floor, the piantereno, had been reserved for trade on the courtyard side since the 14th century, i.e. the economic and financial basis of most of the Venetian families who lived in such palaces. Here the boats docked in front of the portal, were loaded and unloaded and the goods were immediately stored in the adjacent rooms and magazines. In front of the palaces are the famous Pali, the colorful poles for tying up the ships. With their individual colors, they also designate the respective landlord.

The first floor, the piano nobile , and often another, was reserved for the family. Here there was the great hall, the portego, which took up the whole depth of the house in the middle. This central wing was mostly surrounded by smaller rooms on both sides. The servants lived at the top of the mezzanine . Most of the kitchens were also under the roofs - for good reason. If there was a fire here, the whole house wouldn't be affected.

Courtyards are almost always missing. Each palace had its own fountain in the courtyard, which is open to the rear. The less affluent got their water from public cisterns on the campuses . A well was set up above each cistern.

Some of the water for the cisterns came from the roofs. The so-called Gorne, a stone rain gutter, ran around the roof and was connected to the cisterns by vertical drainage pipes. The roofs of the palaces are relatively flat, and - according to legend - because the Venetian women were able to let the sun bleach their hair there until it had reached that shade of golden reddish blonde for which it was famous in Titian's time . Only the hair was bleached, not the skin tanned. That was considered vulgar. Only people who had to work outdoors had brown skin. Contrary to popular belief, the roofs of the Venetian palazzi were rarely really accessible, but in Venice there were and still are numerous arbors , wooden, balcony-like structures above the roofs.

Santa Maria della Salute

Many palaces were very dark inside, despite their airy, light construction, especially in the rear area when the house, as is usually the case in Venice, was wedged between neighboring buildings, with often little or no space for an inner courtyard. The stairwells and ground floors in particular left a lot to be desired in terms of light and air. This is why these areas were upgraded in the 16th century.


Directly facing the Grand Canal, separated from it only by small squares or paved bank areas, there are also some churches: the Santa Maria di Nazareth (Scalzi) , San Simeone Piccolo , San Geremia , San Marcuola , San Stae , San Samuele and Santa Maria della Salute . As part of the Accademia , the largest museum for Venetian art, the nave of the former church of Santa Maria della Carità can also be seen. The church of Santa Lucia was demolished in the 19th century for the construction of the station at the northwest end of the Grand Canal.
