In ancient times, the most efficient roadways through cities were made of canals that would allow easy transport of goods between shops, homes, and shipping centers. While these were long-ago the most efficient mode of transport through cities, it also became quickly adored by residents for the beauty and uniqueness that they add to the overall feel of the cities they serve. While the canals are not as necessary for travel today as they once were, the canals still offer beauty and character to the cities that they grace. Of all of the Canal Cities of the World, here are our favorites:

Beautiful images. I like s’hertogenbosch, NL too. And the obvious Amsterdam and Venice. 😉 … Thanks for sharing the world …
Thanks for the support!!
G’day! Absolutely gorgeous photos and always enjoy learning something new through you!
You have always been such a big supporter, and we appreciate it very much!
Lovely …. Birmingham was a nice surprise! I went there once, years ago, and only saw concrete; just shows how you must always go off the beaten track.
I think that’s a very important idea- sometimes you have to look a little deeper in order to see the beauty!
Beautiful photographs! Great to hear about the lesser known places to add to the list of future holidays!
Glad we could help!
I’m so glad to see Britain featured here! One of the best ways to explore England is by hiring a narrowboat to navigate the amazing system of canals.
True! That is a great tip for those who plan on traveling
