Dirty and decadent just like Venezia
Aug 2020
Nothing speacial at all. Just a hole in a wall to see a dirty river. I wouldn't even recommend anyone to go see that.

Confusing Canals
Nov 2019 • Couples
Slightly disappointed as the canals were pretty much water free but this didn’t stop a queue of sightseers waiting to peer through a small window to view the waterways. It was still worth going just to see another part of the city.

Construction work on going.. canal drained!!
Oct 2019 • Family
This would be lovely when the canal is full, however having visited today there is construction work ongoing at one of the buildings and as a result the canal has been drained, unsure how long this will go on for, but bear this in mind if planning a trip anytime soon.

Cute Canal in Bologna
Sep 2019
La Piccola Venezia is a tiny canal where you can ponder the life of the residents living close to the water. I loved the atmosphere on the spot and also enjoyed the many locks attached to the railing. The locks are placed there by lovers who lock in their love for each other. Then they throw the key in the water.

Hidden sight
Jun 2019 • Couples
A little known fact about Bologna is its canals. There are about 60 kilometers of them.

Today they are mostly unnoticeable because buildings were constructed over them.

The canals were once important for the silk industry.

From Via Piella you can find a small window to the canal.

Hole in the wall
Apr 2019
Good photo op if you’re passing but literally is a whole in the walk through which you see the view everyone else has posted. Nothing more.

Interesting

Little water flow in this canal, but interesting fact to know that these canals flourished in the twelfth century. Today, the underground canals keep the streets from flooding during heavy rains as was evident last week when rain poured off and on all day. We could step off a street curb and never get our feet wet.

Photo opportunity, but not worth going out of your way for
Mar 2019
Bologna’s historic center isn’t all that big so you’ll probably bump into it on your way somewhere else, in which case, stop for a quick look. It’s interesting, kind of quaint view of Bologna’s past, I wouldn’t however recommend going out of your way just to see this

How can this be associated with Venice?!
Feb 2019 • Friends
We went for a walk and happened to find this. One of my party claimed how this was 'elusive' and 'hard to find'. I stated that I wasn't surprised because there wasn't much to see and really there isn't.
It's not beautiful by any stretch.
It is not a canal, it is basically a glorified stream.
If the buildings didn't look as pretty, I would have thought this was in India somewhere. Go if you want but honestly don't go out your way to find it.
