The area
Neighbourhood: Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.

This bridge over the Cannareigo Canal connects the area by the railway station to the main Strada Nova walkway down to Rialto, and it very busy at certain times of day.

It has quite steep steps either side, plus a gentler much wider steps.
Once over the bridge, take time to study the carved balustrades and the tall spires two at each side.

It spans the Cannaregio canal and is a stone and brick bridge with spires. The spires lie at each end of the bridge. A carved balustrade runs on either side of the walkway, and gargoyles decorate its arch.

Ancient bridge built in 1580 instead of a wooden bridge built in 1285. The spires were added during the rebuilt of 1823 and since that time is named Bridge of the spires

This is a fun and amazing place to paint! We set up our easels on each side of the bridge, in the morning on one side and in the afternoon on the other side to stay in the shade. There is a restaurant on one side close to the water. It is a nice place to eat and rest while still have an eye on your painting gears.

This was one of the first bridges that we crossed on our arrival from the train station. It wasn't bad pulling luggage towards our hotel. Quite a managable and wide bridge which leads towards the busy Rio San Leonardo.

This is a really nice area of Venice and should be a point to explore for everyone. It still has the hustle and bustle but with some nice on-street markets along the way and a really good choice of cafes and restaurants.

The bridge itself is nothing special but there are many nice shops on either side and many restaurants, although take care as some are actively trying to con tourists. Nice photo point during the day.

I really wonder why there is so much publicity for this. This is just another bridge in Venice (a big one though) which is more used and has many restaurants nearby. I didn't find it attractive at all.

The 4 spires identify this bridge, one of only two that cross the Cannaregio Canal. It was built in 1823. Along each side on the stone lining the arch are gargoyles. This is the first bridge to cross when walking east from Stazione Santa Lucia.

This is a very nice bridge and worth walking across as well as taking pictures. It's located in the Cannaregio District.
