Whoever christened this Little Venice was surely having a laugh to see how many tourists would rush to visit it? I passed it on the way back to my hotel which was a street or so away. It’s basically a view from a street bridge...More

Definitely a curiosity in this city. For me, most of the “fun” in seeing the canal was just trying to find it — it’s pretty well hidden behind the buildings, so I ended up circling around the streets for a while. Finding it was what...More

It did remind me of Venice without the gondola. Nothing much to see just trying to get to do as much as we can for a short period of stay in Bologna

If you have time for a little walk in Bologna, then i would recommend to put this in your route. It is a small adorable water canal, nothing too special, but worth a glance if in the area.

It’s very beautiful and charming. It’s even more beautiful when there is more water. Interesting for taking pictures. :)

Decided to find this on what was a rainy morning on our recent visit, don't really think it was worth it however. From one side you view it through a window in the wall which does if I am honest slightly resemble a Venice canal...More

It is highlighted on the map of the tourist office and it is fine to visit if you are nearby. The window is hard to find out at first and it is located next to a popular local restaurant. Standing in front of the window...More

Have you been to Venice will this be kind of disappointing. I have seen other places called little venice, with canals that was more appealing. The only look to the canals is over a bridge and through a little window in the wall. Very little...More
