SHOT 3/7/2006 - Venice is one of Italy's most beautiful and romantic cities, built on the water in a lagoon. Venice has many magnificent churches and palaces, lively squares, and interesting shops. It is one of the biggest travel destinations in Italy. Venice is also home of one of the biggest Carnevale celebrations in Italy. The 150 canals of Venice are its streets - roads for land passenger vehicles are nonexistent. Everyone must travel by foot or boat, tourists and locals alike. The Grand Canal (Italian: Canal Grande) is the most important canals in Venice, Italy. It forms one of the major water-traffic corridors in the city. Public transportation is provided by the water bus and by private water taxis. The GRand Canal of Venice runs through most of the city, it "starts" from the lagoon near the train station, makes a large S-shape through the central districts, the "sestiere" of Venice, and ends at the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, near Piazza San Marco (Saint Mark's Square), with an average depth of five meters. Its banks are lined with some of the most beautiful buildings of the city, amongst the many structures are Ca' Rezzonico, Ca d'Oro, Ca' Foscari, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, housing the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, as well as both Pallazi from the two branches of the noble Barbaro family. Some of the churches along the canal include Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute and Il Redentore..(MARC PISCOTTY/ © 2006)
