  • It is the first bridge you come across, just outside the station of Santa Lucia, and cross the Canal on it has the charm of the first time. Very nice views of the Canal, from both sides.

  • Located in front of the hotel from the station there is a large bridge in front of the eyes, stayed. With big casters back inclines most Venetian bridge, stairs, because is very difficult. Hire porters so hard to bringing large luggage, crowded water bus or water taxi, or it takes money to move.

  • Attention if you cross this bridge! This is an appointment of illegal vendors, touts and worse, a place where crooks in organized gangs ripping off tourists by all kinds of tips! I personally saw a tourist being ripped off hundreds of euros... and people have told me things... Only the police seems to ignore what happens regularly on this bridge! My advice: avoid this bridge, which has no interest. And if you must cross it, hurry and beware of all, skip everything and everyone and don't answer to no solicitation... they're crooks!

  • A nice pedestrian bridge - but then central Venice is a pedestrian only place. Steps a bit low and vary in depth.
  • Connection to the main island. Not to steep, always crowded. Beware of rose sellers, who might hand you a rose and later ask for 4-5€. There is a place to leave baggage on the station side of the ponte.
  • Can't miss it. Avoid the hawkers and enjoy the view. Relax!
  • Bridge just out side tail station. Really bussy
  • Beautiful bridge right outside the train station. Lovely design and great first impression of Venice.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
