  • This little bridge is located close to the Arsenale, over the Rio de San Marin, is a single arch stone bridge, with carved stone balusters. This was one of 3 bridges to reference Dante, the others...  more »

  • Very beautiful, small bridge.
  • Bridge very significant from the historical point of view since it is one of the 3 bridges which leads to one of the 3 houses of the patrons to the arsenal. Both the houses and their bridges derive their name from the 3 Canticas of Dante's Divine Comedy. In fact, the Venetians wanted to homage the post-mortem supreme poet for mentioning the Arsenal in the Divine Comedy. Uninteresting from an artistic point of view and closed to the public transit.
