You will have to queue for your chance to take a photo, but it is well worth it as the canal view is so picturesque. Be sure to see the door shut too as you would never know what was behind it!

This is a tourist gimmick and I would not recommend anyone going out of there way to visit this site. Having said that if one is in the area, it is a nice chance to see one of the last remaining canals that has remained uncovered in the city. The window makes for a nice souvenir photo, and best of all its free.

The Ventana al canal is a little window over La Piccola Venezia canal. There’s a small door on the opening of the window where people have placed love locks. Otherwise, it’s a small window with a square view of the canal. Not amazing, but it does provide a more picturesque view of the canal, especially in photos.

This is nothing more than a purpose built little square cut out of the wall for a view of the canal. Directly across the road you get a full view of the canal in the opposite direction and around the corner you get another view in the same direction as the 'window'. The full views at each end are much better than this gimmick

It's a hole in the wall so you can see the river. Quite a cute feature and worth goint a small detour to see.

The service leaves a lot to be desired.
It took over 1 hour to get the main course and 30 minutes foe the appetizer.
Food was average.

If you didn’t know then you’d easily walk straight past this spot, and although as an “attraction” its pretty underwhelming it’s well worth passing by to get a unique view of the famous waterways. A hotspot for photographers, and I’m not sure I ever understood the significance of the small door and padlocks, but peeping through the small hole felt like glimpsing back in time and was well worth the small detour I took.

Finestrella means window in Italian, and that is exactly what it is. A window through which you can see what is called a canal, but appeared to me to more of a brook. Most of these canals/brooks are no longer visible, as in other cities, such as London, but they were used, apparently for the transportation of goods in time gone by. It presents a good opportunity to take an interesting photograph. The brook was fast flowing when I was there, but from some of the reviews here it seems that during the summer months it dries up. On the other side of the bridge there is no wall and you can see the brook as it makes its way between the houses.

A very pretty place for photos in central Bologna. Makes you feel like you are in Venice. There were quite a lot of people taking photos.

I wasn’t expecting much, but since I was passing thought I’d take a quick look and get a photo of the ‘canal’. Except there IS no canal- see photo, nothing there. Disappointing.
