Do take the time to stroll around on the bridges even tho there are bridges everywhere.
We preferred the “small” bridges as they where not crowded like for example Rialto..
Pay attention to the details, around 7-7.30PM is a perfect time to explore the bridges as the light will give its on touch and the canal is quite and calm (compared to daytime).
You might be lucky to see a love couple sitting in the Gondola with the gondolier whistling or humming his song. That is what you can call a beautiful moment.
The picture shows the Rialto area..
Accademia Bridge connects sestiere of San Marco, nearby the church of San Vitale, and Accademia, the most important Art Gallery in Venice.
The bridge was built in the 19th century, completely made with iron. The new version, however, was built in the beginning of the 20th century, only as a temporary bridge. It was realized by engineer Miozzi, first maded with wood and later was reinforced with steel, loosing its main pecuilarity.
Visiting the Canale Grande is a must to have a first impression of Venice.Take a private taxi at the Canale S.Chiara and have a stop at Piazza San Marco. Than cross the magnificent historical city by foot - direction Piazzala Rome. Most main directions are indicated by yellow arrows.But never forget that you have to take one of the three bridges to cross the Canale Grande.
It's just so nice to stroll around Venice and discover the many Pontes (Bridges) - the views up / down the canals from some of them are just breathtaking - surprisingly, some of the nicest bridges / areas, are actually away from the main touristy areas!
I loved the views of the Venetian bridges. The Ponte delle Guglie was formerly known as Ponte di Cannaregio, but lost its name when it was reconstructed in 1823 with pinnacles in each of the four corners.
In the Dorsoduro area is another well known venetian bridge - the Ponte dei Pugni - so called as this is where fights took place and the loser ended up in the canal! Look out for the stone footprints which marked the starting point of the contest.
In San Polo area is the Ponte delle Tette - this is the old "red light" district of Venice, where prostitutes displayed their "attributes" at the windows overlooking this "Bridge of Breasts".
there are 3 bridges that cross the Grand Canal, each is quite unique and has its own story. It was lovely to walk between them and cross over them, looking right down the canal as it curves. Lots of good photo opportunites as well. This can be done at nice lesiurly pace and allows you to see many of Venices fine buildings that line the canal.
There are three bridges that cross the Grand Canal. The one pictured here is the Accademia bridge, it connects the San Marco section and the Dorsoduro region. It's a long wooden bridge with a great view of the church of Santa Maria Della Salute. The Accademia Gallary is directly in front of the bridge and the Campo Morosini is the square on the San Marco section that leads to the bridge. The other two bridges are the Rialto bridge and the Degli Scalzi bridge.
There are only 3 bridges that span the Grand Canal. Let's take a look at them starting with Ponte degli Scalzi on the northern end of the canal by the train station and moving toward the famous Ponte di Rialto and then finally the Ponte dell'Accademia on the southern end.
the Door. And the bridge. The drawing and the photo are the same place. Just inside and outside.
old and broken .
This picture was taken on my Gondola ride. There are many many bridges like these connecting houses/streets in Venice.
When you meander through the streets of Venice, you will all of a sudden come out onto a gorgeous bridge over a gorgeous canal.
the bridges in Venice are beautiful/....each one has a different view..... and life to it....especially at dusk:)
Once again in the background is another bridge, the only way to get across the canals other than by boat.
When u walk through Venice u will see many bridges, the streets are very narrow, first time i saw just small alleys.
Such a pity i dont have any pictures left from this trip.
It's not the Bridge of Sospiri, nor the Accademia Bridge but shall it have a famous name to end up in a picture???
