Your First Step in Venice

The Ponte degli Scalzi, literally, the "bridge of the barefoot monks", is one of only four bridges in Venice to span the Grand Canal. The bridge connects the Sestieri of Santa Croce and Cannaregio. Designed by Eugenio Miozzi, it was completed in 1934, replacing an Austrian iron bridge. This is a great spot to get unique photos of the Grand Canal, since most tourists walk home with pictures from the Rialto Bridge and nowhere else.
