When you get the bus station, all of sudden you see traffic. Motor traffic.
You are away from traditional Venice. This modern bridge which is part glass links the train station to the bus station.
When we went you can see commuters mingling with tourists.
I rate this bridge "terrible" not because it is ugly but because the design is terrible for people going down either slope - our disaster happened when we were walking down to the bus area, but I assume it is just as bad the other...More
This relatively new bridge crosses the Grande Canal and links Piazzale Roma (bus and land taxi station etc) on one side of the Grand Canal with the Railway station area on the other. A modern design, made in part in glass (although with a concrete...More

One of only four bridges that cross the Grand Canal it connects, Piazzle Roma with sestiere Cannaregio near Stazione Santa Lucia. This is a great place to take photos of the Grand Canal and Piazzle Roma.
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighborhood identity.
