Ponte degli Scalzi, Venice

#161 of 849 in Things to do in Venice
The Ponte degli Scalzi, literally, "bridge of the barefoot ", is one of only four bridges in Venice, Italy, to span the Grand Canal.
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.

  • The Ponte degli Scalzi Bridge is a bridge that connects Venice with the land adjacent to the conventional Bridge railway station. It is not particularly beautiful, but the view from the bridge overlooks the Grand Canal and the beautiful canal building, especially the iconic green roof.

  • One of the four bridges over the "Grand Canal". Close to Santa Lucia station and the ideal start to visit Venice on foot.

  • Good place to sleep. A little confusing to get into the building since it is a "residence." The person was trying to call us but we didnt have travel phone plan. Be nice if the buzzer worked. Not until another couple staying there helped us out. More instructions requires on the booking.
  • Awful. Worst experience I've ever had. Mold and dust everywhere. No reception, our door didn't lock. Absosulety disgusting. Place needs to be closed down. We felt physically sick staying here. Sheets had stains on, disgusting
