Cross the Grand Canal on Ponte dell'Accademia, one of four bridges to cross the span of water on the southern end. The crossing connects the sestieres, or city subdivisions, of Dorsoduro and San Marco. When you go, look for the “lovers’ locks,” or the padlocks engraved with couples’ names and locked onto the railings.

One of the few bridges that crosses the Grand Canal and there are lovely views from the top. Best time to go is sunset. more »
This was for me the best view in all of Venice and I literally could have spent hours just sitting here and watching the city go by around me. When we went there were not many tourists and we had a chunk of the bridge to ourselves. It was absolutely stunning and will be for me the picture in my head in when I think back to what Venice looks like.
Beautiful city! Get your glad rags on and snap snap snap. You'd be silly not to get tons of photos. And If you're me and have a brilliant mister to take photos of you then lucky You! ;). Beautiful in the summer( be ready to walk lots FYI)
