This is an amazing site to see while visiting Venice and the history behind it is even more amazing. It's worth the time and effort to view this beautiful site.

“Iconic must-see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

It is easy to incorporate a visit to the bridge into a time limited trip to Venice. It was fun to walk over, albeit too crowded to get a photo. Going under it was fine and I kissed my honey there so we will be together forever (!). The best was seeing it from a gondola; it is most beautiful!

“Beautiful Bridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Great view of the Grand Canal from the top. It's very crowded all the time, but that still does not detract from it at all! A must see while in Venice.

“Beautiful, crowded during the day but quiet in the evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

There are many bridges in Venice, but this one has the best vantage point for taking fantastic photos of the canal. Stand on the bridge and look down the Grand Canal. Get your picture taken. Another must see! Get there early or stay late to avoid the crowds. This is a busy and bustling part of Venice with some street vendors and souvenir shops. Sunset is spectacular!!
