Cheap hotels near Grand Canal in Venice, Italy

The Grand Canal, Venice’s most famous waterway, slices through the city in a giant S-shape, defining borders for most of the city’s sestieri (districts). Several bridges cross the canal, among them the mighty Rialto Bridge and the Accademia Bridge.

The Grand Canal is Venice’s busiest water thoroughfare, packed with vaporetto (water taxis), gondolas and private boats. A tour of the canal reveals a wide range of architectural styles, including Renaissance, Byzantine, Gothic, Baroque and modern.

On the first Sunday of September, the Grand Canal plays host to the city’s annual regatta, or boat race.

Hotels near Grand Canal: Since the Grand Canal links the city’s major neighborhoods, it’s hard to find a hotel that isn’t near it! Our picks below include some near the iconic Rialto Bridge, in the neighborhoods of San Marco and Cannaregio.
