A former river bed, the Canal Grande gently flows through Venice forming an inverted 's'. Walkable waterfronts offer extraordinary views over this breathtaking water promenade. Gondoliers can be heard singing Opera along the canal.  Boats must respect a very strict speed limit (5 km/hour) meant to prevent their wake from endangering the fragile foundations of the buildings.
