  Ponte di Scalzi
by sachara

The Bridge of the Scalzi is probably the first bridge over the Canal Grande you will see when arriving in Venice. This bridge is just in front of the railwaystation and not far from Piazzale Roma.

The new bridge is made of Istrian stone and replaced in 1933 the former iron bridge. The bridge is 40m long and 7m high. It was named after the order of Scalzi, the Bare-footed monks, whose monastery is just at the northern side of the bridge (left at the picture).

Address: Between Cannaregio and Santa Croce

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
