The buildings overlooking the Grand Canal are recognised, historically and universally, as being the most remarkable in Venice. They are the most prestigious both from the architectural and artistic point of view and for their position from which you can enjoy a breathtaking panorama which will fill your eyes and heart with its timeless beauty.
The Grand Canal, which is the city’s main canal, is effectively a huge serpent, some four kilometres long, which crosses Venice starting from the Ponte della Libertà, the bridge which joins the mainland to the historic centre and ending up at the Basin of St. Mark’s.
Booking one of our rental apartments in the heart of Venice means you can also enjoy the Grand Canal itself from a gondola, an absolutely unique experience which will allow you a privileged view of those palazzos and churches which have always testified to Venice’s historic and artistic greatness – buildings such as Ca’ d’Oro, Ca’ Pesaro, Palazzo Grassi, Basilica della Salute, Fontego dei Tedeschi, Fontego dei Turchi, Ca’ Vendramin (Venice’s Casino), Pescheria di Rialto, Palazzo Grimani, Ca’ da Mosto, Ca’ Rezzonico, Palazzo Balbi and many others.
From your holiday apartment you would be able to reach the four bridges on the Grand Canal – the Ponte della Costituzione, the Ponte degli Scalzi, the Ponte di Rialto and the Ponte dell’Accademia.
you are thinking of planning a holiday in Venice at the end of the summer, you
might think of booking an apartment during the month of September, during which
the famous Regata Storica (Historic Regatta) takes place. This secular festival takes place right on
the magnificant Grand Canal and holds a special place in the hearts of Venetians. During the first part of the festival there
is an evocative historical pageant in costumes with traditional Venetian rowing
boats. In the second part, exciting,
competitive races take place involving everyone including the tourists. Choosing
a rental apartment on Venice’s Grand Canal therefore ensures that you will
participate fully in what is, together with the Carnival, probably the most important
and best loved festival of the city’s inhabitants.
You will also be able to experience a unique sojourn in the most prestigious area of Venice, very close to many unmissable sights, breathtaking vistas and all the comforts and conveniences which contribute to the making of a perfect holiday.
