Beautiful and ancient-looking. Nice to stop and watch the water go by. Beautiful pictures from this bridge, and make sure to take pics of the bridge itself.

The bridge is in the quiet quarter not far away from the centre of Vicenza. You'd better to visit it at night, but during the day You're sure to find something beautiful in it))
