Grand Canal is a board that is based off of the real Grand Canal in Venice in Mario Party 7. Here, singing Shy Guys are everywhere and in charge of the Orb Shops and attractions. Landing on the Green Space near the start makes the player do a coin game, where the Shy Guys throw coins and Spiny eggs at them (similar to Ukiki from Mario Party 6).
Landing on the Green Spaces near the gondola house makes a Singing Shy Guy come out asking if they wanted a ride. Accepting this takes the player to the gondola house on the other side of the board, collecting coins (and avoiding Spinies) on the way. The Green Space on what looks like the leaning tower of Pisa causes the tower to lean over, dropping players in the water, where a Cheep-Cheep squirts them back to the start. The Green Space in front of the juggling Blooper activates a guessing game, where Blooper juggles four chests that have: a Star, ten coins, a Dark Star (which took away a Star if picked), and nothing (in Solo Mode, there was still one Star, but three Dark Stars). Finally, if the player lands on any of the two Green Spaces on the stone drawbridge, the bridge will open and send the player (and any other player on the bridge) to a different area on the board.
In Solo Mode, players have to beat their opponent by getting two Stars first by buying them for 20 coins on a random space in the board.
