Aa great spot for pictures of the boat traffic on The Grand Canal. Along with watching all the locals and other tourists.

Passed under this bridge many times on our trips up and down the Grande Canal. Worth getting off at the Vaporetto Water bus stop and actually crossing it on foot. Beautiful views of the Grande Canal

Though often crowded it is really nice to stand on the bridge with the view on the canal. Good place to take pictures and give flowers for your loved ones

This is just a bridge but as these are few and far between along the length of the Grande Canale, it is important if you want to get across from San Marco. I wouldn't regard this as a must-see though.

Old wooden bridge Invariably crowded unless you're there early or late Great views down the Grande Canal however Use the bridge to access the quieter dorsoduru neighbourhood

The well known wooden bridge crossing the Canal Grande takes you in the Accademia di Belle Arti and the Accademia Gallery. It is, anyhow, a nice path into a more quiet and equally beautiful area of Venice.

Worthwhile to see some lovely Ventian art. Although there isn't a wide range in the collection. The BoschTriptych is usually kept exhibited there which is a beautiful piece.
