The Grand Canal has just four bridges which cross over it, the “Rialto Bridge” which you’ve already seen.
The Accademia Bridge, a wooden construction which has apparently captured the same romantic feeling as the “Love-lock” bridge in Paris near the Notre Dame.
As for romance though, I guess the Scalzi Bridge will be remembered for a long time by this bride on her big day, many congratulations to the happy couple.
I couldn’t help but marvel at the photographer’s tripod, an ingenious contraption for taking photos from angles where he wouldn’t possibly be able to reach otherwise.
The final bridge, a recent addition to the Grand Canal is Calatrava’s Bridge. Looking online I could see from various sites that it’s been shrouded in controversy from its beginning. I can’t help making the comparison with Paris again, it’s like the glass pyramid at the Louvre, a modern construction nestled amid the traditional. You either love it or you hate it.
