Bridge Tourist Spot
Cross the Grand Canal on Ponte dell'Accademia, one of four bridges to cross the span of water on the southern end. The crossing connects the sestieres, or city subdivisions, of Dorsoduro and San Marco. When you go, look for the “lovers’ locks,” or the padlocks engraved with couples’ names and locked onto the railings. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Ponte dell'Accademia by using our Venice vacation trip planner.

  • Large wooden bridge. lovely restaurant right there and public toilets very close. Great to just watch the canal and all of its activity  more »
  • This bridge was just a short walk from our hotel and we spent every evening of our stay soaking in the wonderful views of the Grand Canal that you get standing on the bridge.  more »
  • Ancient wooden bridge at a narrow part of the canal, obviously been maintained over the centuries, the padlocks of love are a lot of extra weight.  more »

  • Wood and metal bridge with lots of character - more so than the modern but sterile constituzione bridge. Great spot for that step-into-a-venetian postcard-can't go wrong picture.
  • Nice central location in Venice. Good place to catch the Vaporetto. Fun people watching.
  • Absolute must for anyone interested in the Renaissance and Michaelangelo
  • This is one of four bridges over Canal Grande. It is only a temporary bridge, but looks really nice though. Hopefully, the city will decide on building a bridge that fits more into Venice. You can take a really good pictures from up there, however it is crowded usually. This is also the old water entrance into the city.
  • Historically new made in the 1930's as a temporary structure. Nobody set an expiration date I suppose, and it's still here today.
