Travel Photos – Bridges in Venice
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.
The iconic Rialto Bridge on the Grand Canal
One of the smallest bridges
Imagine walking out your front door onto a bridge!
Two bridges side by side. The one in the foreground is private of course and has its own little gate.
Washing over the canal.
There are fewer overhead bridges that you would imagine – it’s a tight squeeze for the gondola
A market boat with a sail!
The bridge at Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo
I was surprised to see so many parents with strollers rather than baby carriers
Look, no railings!
Another gondolier on his cell phone!
Bridge in the old ghetto quarter
A favourite resting place for gondoliers
The Bridge of Sighs from the canal side
The greenery on the right is wisteria. Unfortunately it was no longer in flower when we were there!
