The Grand Canal (in Italian: Canal Grande) is the largest and most important canal of the Italian city of Venice.

Cutting most of the city, it has its “beginning” in the lagoon near the train station, making a large “S” shaped by the central districts, sestieri, and ends next to the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute, near Piazza San Marco. It has an average depth of five meters.
