just a straight strip of water, nothing special to go out of your way to see. nice to sit by and have a drink or eat by. Spend five mins looking at it and move on.

It probably looks better at night... More

Lovely place to relax in one of the restaurants and bars along the beautiful canal. So peaceful in the middle of the day for drinks and nibbles.

Getting tired of the hectic city center and all the tourists? Take a stroll at the canale grande and enjoy the more relative peace and quiet and energize on the dozens of the cafes along the canale before heading back because this canale is really short. Beware not to tip over when gazed over the clear water and its fish... More

If you are in Trieste, this is a nice canal to check out. You can see the reflection of the surrounding buildings on the water. Take your picture of the canal, and then head to the town main square.

It divides the better part of town from the less desirable area approaching the train station and provides and interesting small waterway where boats are moored. There are one or two average cafe's overlooking at the water. At the city end there is the Piazza S Antonio Nouvo.
