The Ponte degli Scalzi, literally, "bridge of the barefoot ", is one of only four bridges in Venice, Italy, to span the Grand Canal.Work out when and for how long to visit Ponte degli Scalzi and other Venice attractions using our handy Venice trip itinerary builder site .
The bridge connects the sestieri of Santa Croce and Cannaregio. On the north side, Cannaregio, are the Chiesa degli Scalzi and the Santa Lucia railway station. The south side is the sestiere of Santa Croce.
Designed by Eugenio Miozzi, it was completed in 1934, replacing an Austrian iron bridge. It is a stone arch bridge.
Ponte degli Scalzi is located close to the site of construction of the fourth bridge over the Grand Canal, popularly known as Ponte di Calatrava although it was formally inaugurated as the Ponte della Costituzione. Construction was delayed in part due to controversy over its modern style, but the basic span was finally in place on August 11, 2007, and the bridge was opened for public use on September 11, 2008. This bridge is closer to the bus station than the Scalzi bridge.

Not the most popular bridge in Venice but it is worth to visit. Next to the central rail station and close to center. if you go on top of the bridge as all over Venice you will have good pictures and good view. Best time to have a good photos are early mornings and late evenings. I think so.
Been to Venice for six times, Every time you exit the st Lucia train station, you see this symbolic bridge . Lovely
