* In ''Literature/Birthright2017'', the city of Sangam, being built on the islands of a river delta, has an extensive series of canals. Most of them appear to be completely natural rather than man-made, complete with mangrove trees growing out of the water and along the banks.

** Suramar City in ''Legion'' is much more Venice-like, complete with gondolas; diving into the canals is one of the best ways to escape from enemies.

* The city of Urteau in ''[[{{Mistborn}} The Hero Of Ages]]'' '''had''' canals, but they dried up and they have street slots now. Canals are also used as a sort of highway system in the {{Mistborn}} Trilogy.

* There's one in ''Franchise/DotHack'', Mac Anu, the first Root Town (city and only areas free of monsters) new players of The World see. It maintains it's presence in all .hack Media. After the destruction of The World's servers and creation of The World R:2 it has a new design with Steampunk elements though it keeps it's characteristic Canals. When The World R:X is released the design of R:2's version seems to be left intact but without the SteamPunk elements creating a fusion of sorts between the two.



* ''Anime/PokemonHeroes'', the fifth ''Film/{{Pokemon}}'' movie, was set in a City of Canals called Alto Mare (Italian for ''high sea''); the director visited Venice beforehand to scout out the city. Within the games, there's Canalave City in ''Pokémon Diamond and Pearl''.

* The island Water 7 in ''Manga/OnePiece'' is modeled after Venice, down to the canals and festival costumes. But [[UpToEleven exaggerated]].



* ''Animation/GuardianFairyMichel'' has Precia, which took a more realistic approach with the canals being full of stinky trash.



* The Asturian capital in ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'' is also depicted like this.

* Many, if not [[UpToEleven most]] cities of [[UsefulNotes/TheNetherlands the Netherlands]] - of [[CaptainObvious course]], since this is the country that most major European rivers end in, and it lies mostly below Sea Level. To note just some of the better-known cities: [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amsterdam Amsterdam]] (where Film/{{Amsterdamned}} takes place; and like noted above, this city has the nickname of "Venice of the North"); [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utrecht Utrecht]] (where most of the before-mentioned Film/{{Amsterdamned}} was actually shot); [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delft Delft]] (from Film/GirlWithAPearlEarring) and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leiden Leiden]] (from Film/SoldierOfOrange).
