This page is an overview of all the canals in Venice.

Venice is known as "the City of Canals" and contains 182 named canals which break down further into Canal Segments connecting Venice' islands. [1]. The longest canal is the Grand Canal which spans 4,016 meters. In Venice, a single canal is called rio (plural: rii).

History

The current canals of Venice are descendants of natural lagoon channels that separated the original islands. With the development of the City of Venice, their natural paths were gradually modified through land reclamation that brought the islands closer and closer to each other, resulting in the canal network one can observe today. Due to these pervasive human interventions, only a few of today's canals still retain their original natural course, as evidenced by the Grand Canal, whose sinuous shape clearly betrays its natural origins. [2]

Statistics

Hydrodynamics

The effects of hydrodynamics are constantly changing because of the frequent intersections in Venetian canals . Hydrodynamics of the Canal Segments are necessary for them to function correctly.
