Traversing Venice’s Grand Canal near the Rialto Bridge
The S-shaped Grand Canal cuts through central Venice, forming the major water-traffic corridor.
Tourists ride ornate gondolas, while locals and visitors navigate the canal via water buses (vaporetti), private water taxis and stand up ferries called traghettos.
The Rialto Bridge – one of only four spanning the Grand Canal – is the oldest and most iconic.
The stone bridge was completed in 1591.
