  • 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.
