The Grand Canal
The Grand Canal in Venice, Italy serves as a transportation service to many of the residents of the city. It's a little under 2.5 miles long, and has an average depth of about 15 feet. The first known settlers of the area came before the Roman age. The city is sinking at around 2-4 mm per year based on the part of the city (the north is sinking slower than the south).
