#29 of 854 in Things to do in Venice
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.

  • As Rialto is the bridge par excellence. Beautiful Majestic on the Grand Canal. Nice to see from underneath with the boat and nice to cross.

  • To do, for a walk to the neighborhood of Dorsoduro and a beautiful promenade, bridge in iron and wood very original or you will have a magnificent view of the Grand Canal and the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute

  • Great views here from the bridge. Would highly suggest paying for a 1 day water bus fare, this way you can visit islands and then also take a ride along the canal in the day and evening.
  • this is bridge from where you will have a best view and most popular view to St. Mark Basilica. Also on the bridge there are bunch of people attracting people with gambling games but DO NOT PLAY them as you will be fooled. I saw at least 10 people who are watching for police as I believe it is illegal. :D But view from bridge is amazing. P.S. Do not buy those cheap selfie sticks be communicable and ask other trustworthy people to take photo with you. :P
