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.

  • Although not as well known as the Rialto Bridge, as one of only a few bridges that cross the grand canal, this should be one of the places you visit while in Venice. You will be rewarded with some nic...  more »
  •  I think many people is seen in the paintings of this scene. Representative again and again without appearing in a Venetian painting Venetian landscape seen from the Accademia bridge Santamaria-Dallas Al-Te Basilica. Located in a stately presence is heavy and stable to the Grand Canal to curve to the left. Crossing the Accademia bridge while a little slowly, sit down and enjoy from the pass while enjoying the scene will change the composition, and found my favorite position. With day and evening and the next morning I went 3 times. It is a landscape of love.  Will be glad you came to Venice. But this per, & found there. Careful tourists be sure is the target. There are also four. Note back across the bridge to the South and less crowded. -Be surrounded, kicked.

  • If there isn't we should build it. Connects the 2 Islands, very useful for locals and tourists. Switches to the foot of the Grand Canal near St. mark.

  • 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.

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.
