The entrance of the Grand Canal of Venice

About this event

Venice's Grand Canal starts at the Punta della Dogana, the triangular tip of the sestiere of Dorsoduro where the majestic Basilica della Salute is. I'll begin the tour from the very tip, in front of which the water of the Grand Canal merges with the Giudecca Canal, to see from outside the former Customs House is (now transformed into a museum by Tadao Ando), the Palazzo del Seminario and the Basilica della Salute (both designed by Baldassarre Longhena). The views on the Giudecca Canal on one side and the Grand Canal on the other are breathtaking.
