Canal Grande VII, Venice Italy Painting

Canal Grande, Venice VII
Canal Grande, Venice VII

Spend 10 minutes on top of the Rialto Bridge overlooking the Grand Canal, and you will perhaps see a dozen different kinds of boats that go up and down this city's major water corridor - waterbuses, taxis, barges, private boats of local residents and of course gondolas, etc., all navigating their way through each other.

The Grand Canal is said to follow the course of an ancient river and the area around the Rialto Bridge is the place of the first settlement that later became the city's center of trade.  From what we see today, the area is still the scene of busy life in Venice.

nice touches. Grand Canal is a classic, but it is always great to a different version!

greetings from Veny

Grazie mille, Veny, this view has been painted by numerous artists and we will continue seeing more in the future. Venice never fails to inspire and fascinate creative minds.
