Most Famous Bridges in Venice

Rialto Bridge

Just as famous as the Bridge of Sighs and equally photogenic, the Rialto Bridge is the main pedestrian crossing over the Grand Canal.Rows of shops line this wide, arched bridge and the famous Rialto fish and food market is nearby.

Academy Bridge

The Academy Bridge (Ponte dell Accademia) is so named because it crosses the Grand Canal at the Galleria dell Accademia, one of the top museums in Venice.

Scalzi Bridge

Named for the nearby Chiesa degli Scalzi, literally the “church of the barefoot monks,” the Scalzi Bridge is an elegant stone span that links the Santa Croce and Cannaregio neighborhoods.

Calatrava Bridge

Completed in 2008, the Calatrava Bridge was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.The final of 4 bridges to span the Grand Canal, the Calatrava has been a controversial addition to Venice’s architectural landscape because of its modern appearance.

Ponte delle Guglie

The Ponte delle Guglie is one of two bridges that span the Cannaregio Canal, situated at its western end, near where it joins with the Grand Canal.It’s close to the Venezia Santa Lucia train station, not far from the Rialto Bridge.
