This bridge is a great place to stand and people and boat watch. It is always busy with people heading to L'Accademia in one dirction and the Peggy Guggenhiem in the other. From the bridge, looking at the canal, there is a continual succession of gondolas, water taxis, vaporettos and other working boats. Never a dull moment

We saw this place several times from different angles -by water and by walking-. We did not go inside, but I do not doubt that it would be worthwhile to do so. We spent a week in Venice and I was a little sorry that I couldn't stay there for a month. But even with that extra time I'm not... More

It's a bit of a climb if you're out of shape but not horrible. You can get some great photos of the Grand Canal from the center. Closest bridge to St. Mark's Square.

You simply must experience walking up and over this famous wooden bridge, and be sure to pause at the top to take the famous view of the Grand Canal.

This wooden pedestrian bridge crosses the Grand Canal at its southern end before Saint Mark's Basin, connecting the San Marco and Dorsodura historic districts. I have used it to reach both the Gallerie dell' Accademia and Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Dorsodura. The views from both sides present lovely photo ops, especially when a gondola glides by. Few people seem to... More

After wandering around for hours, we were happy to finally find a way back across the canal. I'm not sure that there are any photos of the steps involved so I am sharing one. Sorry for the blurriness. Very romantic views from the bridge at night!

We stayed around the corner from here and walked up the bridge each morning we was there to enjoy the morning views of venice. The bridge itself is a great structure and easy to find when walking from st marks square. As a treat the godala rides that are available at the foot of the bride are great. If you... More

A pretty wooden bridge spanning the Grand Canal linking Dorseduro with San Marco but what makes it special are the fantastic views up and down the Grand Canal and usually with a lot less people to have to barge out the way than the RIalto bridge.

Not as beautiful or as busy as Rialto bridge, Accademia though provides fantastic views of sunrise/sunset. It connects to Dorsoduro which is a great district to explore
