The Ponte San Michelle bridge spans the river (Fiume Retrone) in central Vicenza with grace and elegance. Its old and weather beaten. Old houses line both sides of the river and it is the perfect spot for a picture of an old Italian town.

If you or your spouse enjoy taking photographs, this is a good place to spend an hour or so. The bridge and surrounding buildings are above average for photography.

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.

This ancient bridge has survived many hundreds of years of traffic in the historic part of Vicenza . You can find it if you continue a walk down from the Piazza signori , behind the Basilica di Palladio . Its not big and possibly can be appreciated more if you go to the neighbouring bridge where you will get a... More

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))
