la serenissima - the canal grande

The Canal Grande is the first thing most tourists see when coming to Venice. I took the bus from Mestre to Piazzale Roma, where you can board many of the Vaparettos to get to your respective hotel in Venice, the Piazza San Marco or the Rialto Bridge.

It is love on first when boarding the Vaparetto - the city opens its arms and embraces the visitor with its magic, beauty and charme. My camera clicked non-stop while driving along the most beautiful Palazzi, bridges and the markets.

When you take the Vaparatto line 1, you´ll get a wonderful first overview of the city and its major sights. But do not forget getting lost in the small streets of old Venezia - the Canal Grande will never be far away anyways...
