You can’t think of Venice without bridges and the ones at canal-level all humpbacked to let the gondolas and other boats through. I loved them all! These are a few of my favourites.

Tall and metal.

Imagine walking out your front door onto a bridge!

There are fewer overhead bridges that you would imagine

    A lovely overview. Makes you want to rush off to Venice immediately!

    I may be one of the few visitors to Venice to have never traveled by gondola ~ yet, I’ve seen many photographs of the canals taken by those who have.

    Enjoyed this tour of the city’s waterways from a different perspective, that of its (apparently) many bridges!

      We didn’t take a gondola the first time, but we did the second time and loved it! I described our experience in Secret Venice – The Gondola Ride.
