"Three Bridges Alone Arch the Grand Canal" Bridges Tip by mrclay2000

Bridges, Venice: 64 reviews and 77 photos

  Accademia Bridge, east end of Grand Canal
by mrclay2000
 
 

Favorite thing: Venice has only three bridges that arch the Grand Canal: the station bridge near the rail station, the famous Rialto midway along the canal, and the last-added Accademia Bridge, so named for the nearby art academy. The last bridge seems almost a replica of Rialto except that instead of stone it is composed of wood, which makes it seem a little more old-fashioned than the former. The views looking east from the Accademia Bridge encompass Santa Maria della Salute and the mouth of the lagoon.
