What travelers say:

Great trip by gondola to admire the bridge! The view by boat has really different feeling, i suggest to have a try, just once in life! ;)

Additional Information

Introduction

There are several bridges crossing the Canal Grande but this is the oldest and most well known. Originally built of wood at the end of the 12th Century, the current one in stone, designed by Antonio da Ponte, was built 1554-1591. It is the heart of Venice to some. And until the Academia bridge was built in 1854 it was the only way to cross the Canal Grande on foot. Now you find many shops on the bridge selling all kinds of souvenirs and curiosities. Fresh fruit, vegetable and fish markets line the streets in the bustling neighborhood. There are a number of steps so those with wheelchairs or strollers should beware.

Helpful Information

1.During the day, it is very crowded on the bridge and you have to take care of your own safety. It is much better to go there early in the morning or in the evening.2.There are many souvenir stalls on the bridge, and if you do not have any desire to buy, do not bargain nor accost them in any way. If not, they are not going to let you off lightly.
