Bridges, Venice: 26 reviews and 45 photos
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".
