How deep is the water in Venice, Italy?

Answer

The Canal Grande in Venice, Italy, is approximately 16 feet or 5 meters deep in most places. It snakes through the city in a large "S" shape.

The Canal Grande stands at a depth of 16 feet generally. However, this depth can vary at certain points throughout the 2.36 miles that it encompasses. It starts out at the Saint Mark Basin and loops in an "S" shape to the Santa Lucia rail station on the other end. This ancient waterway is lined by about 170 buildings that were constructed mostly by wealthy Venetian families between the 13th and 18th centuries. Much of the traffic of the city passes along the canal, including water taxis and the famous gondolas. There are three bridges over the canal: the Ponte Degli Scalzi, Rialto Bridge and the Ponte dell'Accademia.
