Arriving from the bus station and crossing over to Venice, this bridge gives you a glimpse of what you would expect to see of the amazing Venice. It is also fantastic photo-op location.

Be very careful crossing this bridge. I'd literally just arrived in Venice for the very first time and lost my footing on the downside of this bridge. It had been raining and the floor is made of glass I think...anyway took a right bang to my head and looked a right sight for my few days in Venice.

If you are architect or student this is a masterpiece by Santiago Calaterava which we found it by chance. The bridge is absolutely amazing while it comes across the old city gives a different view which is modern and have some contradiction and unity with old at the same time.

This sleek creation of Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava opened as the fourth pedestrian bridge over Venice's Grand Canal in 2008. When I first saw the long span from the Stazione di Santa Lucia on a recent visit, I was struck by its simplistic, modernistic style. A fan of Calatrava since looking at his amazing futuristic buildings in Valencia, Spain, I... More

There is nothing special about the location of this bridge, although I suppose it’s kind of cool seeing it as you get off the train and buses. However, the bridge alone is quite pretty and modern with its graceful, shallow arch that widens in the middle like a slightly curled leaf. The first time I saw it, we were entering... More

A prominent and scenic modern and recently constructed glass bridge at the beginning of the long and winding Grand Canal. It's arching and more modern for Venice. As many of the Venice bridges, it has any steps, and the placement makes walking not the smoothest- so pay attention, especially if you are carrying or dragging suitcases. It was designed by...

it's a modern bridge built to connect the central bus square, parkings, boat stops with the train station. it's literally the first thing you see when you enter the city of Venice. it's a bit out of place as it's a modern design bridge in a city existing otherwise only out of classic buildings. however, when crossing the bridge the...

In my view this is not a tourist attraction in itself, it's a utilitarian structure to link the Piazzale Roma (bus station and car park) with the train station and the main walking route into Venice itself. Some nice views of older parts of Venice but there are better views once you get into the main part of the city.
