Full puzzle size: 98 x 33 cm
This beautiful evening sunset picture of the Grand Canal is enchanting.
The Grand Canal has an average depth of 5 metres (17 feet) and connects at various points with a maze of smaller canals. These waterways carry the bulk of Venetian transportation, as automobiles are banned throughout much of the city. Traditional poled gondolas are a favourite with touristists.
The banks of the Grand Canal are lined with more than 170 buildings, most of which date from the 13th to the 18th century, and demonstrate the welfare and art created by the Republic of VENICE. The noble Venetian families faced huge expenses to show off their richness in suitable palazzo, this contest reveals the citizens’ pride and the deep bond with the lagoon. Amongst the many are the Palazzi Barbara, Ca' Rezzonico, Ca' d'Oro, Palazzo Dario, Ca' Foscari, Palazzo Barbarigo and to Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, housing the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. The churches along the canal include the basilica of Santa Maria della Salute. Centuries-old traditions, such as the Historial Regatta, are perpetuated every year along the Canal.
