    Entrance to Venice

    For me, this bridge is the Entrance to Venice. By passing the bridge, you leave the surrounding of the railway station and enter the city. The bridge itself has nothing special and it is usually total...

    The bridge you pass when you arrive to the train station

Additional Information

Introduction

Have you ever paused in the center of a bridge, looked down and watched the water flow hypnotically downstream? There is nothing more relaxing than the sight and sound of running water, and no bridge is better for a midday meditation than the Ponte delgi Scalzi. "Ponte delgi Scalzi" literally means "bridge of the barefoot," and it is one of only four bridges that stretch across Venice's famed Grand Canal. For those who desire simplicity, it is by far the most beautiful, consisting of a simple, slender arch rising over the bustling canal traffic.
