Ponte degli Scalzi is probably the first bridge over the Canal Grande you'll see when in Venice. It was built in the early 20th century to replace a former ironbridge. The whole arched bridge is made of Istrian (in Croatia) stone.
The bridge is 40m long and 7m height. It was named after the order of Scalzi (the Bare-footed monks), whos monastery is in the close vicinity of the bridge.
