Opened in late 2008. the newest bridge in Venice in a long time is super sleek and modern. Designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, it basically connects Santa Lucia Train Station to Piazzale Roma Bus Terminal. Unfortunately, even though they are not so steep, crossing this bridge still involves steps.
As long as you don't sleep (or someone stays awake), the police can't get you. Hangout at the al fresco bars and get the first crack and have the famous square all to yourself at the first break of dawn. It's your only chance to see the piazza without the usual throng. Stay in a well-lit place, preferably, with a group. There's safety in numbers.
The beauty of Venice is everywhere. There is nowhere in the world quite like it . We enjoyed just strolling around and crossing the bridges. They are so beautiful. There are about 100 islands in Venice that are connected by bridges, each of which presents a distinctly different view of the city.
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..
Because there are a lot of canals in Venice you will see a lot of beautiful bridges to pass the canals.
Beside the famous bridges there are many other , small , anonymous and beautiful.
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.
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.
In the 19th century a causeway to the mainland brought a railway station to Venice, and an automobile causeway and parking lot was added in the 20th century. Taking a few minutes to cross it provides an unforgettable view of Venice as you approach. Not quite the same as a bost trip from Marco Polo airport, but still exciting just the same.
the Door. And the bridge. The drawing and the photo are the same place. Just inside and outside.
old and broken .
When you meander through the streets of Venice, you will all of a sudden come out onto a gorgeous bridge over a gorgeous canal.
This picture was taken on my Gondola ride. There are many many bridges like these connecting houses/streets in Venice.
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.
the bridges in Venice are beautiful/....each one has a different view..... and life to it....especially at dusk:)
It's not the Bridge of Sospiri, nor the Accademia Bridge but shall it have a famous name to end up in a picture???
There are two major bridges across the Grand Canal. One of the is Academia, a wooden construction. The view from this bridge of the Salute is wonderful.
