Venice Canals In Early Evening Light

The S-shaped Grand Canal is the biggest of Venice’s 177 canals and splits the city in two. There are 417 bridges of which 72 are private. There are only four bridges that cross the Grand Canal.

They are the wooden Ponte dell’Accademia, the Ponte degli Scalzi, the modern Ponte di Calatrava a Venezia, and the most famous of them all — the Rialto Bridge, which was built in the late 16th century. The Rialto Market is located just steps from the Rialto Bridge and was founded in 1097. During the Venetian Empire, the Rialto Market was one of the largest and most powerful in the world. Spices, jewels, food, cloth, and animals both the east and the west were sold to buyers from all over Europe and beyond.

Sadly, Venice is sinking at the rate of 1-2 millimetres a year and its population has decreased from 120,000 to 60,000 in the last 50 years.
