The Grand Canal is a main waterway in the lagoon city of Venice that is almost four kilometres long, between 30 and 70 metres wide and up to five metres deep. It is lined by over 200 magnificent noble palaces. In Venice, the height of the palaces was dictated by numerous regulations of the city republic and everyone accepted that. In Vendig, compared to other Italian cities, there was a strong common spirit that overrode individual interests.
