Pretty damned good for a temporary bridge erected donkeys years ago - the timber bracing looks more solid than most of the buildings! Some great views up and down the grand canal

Fantastic view of Santa Maria Della Salute and your photos will look just like the ones you see in the holiday brochures. Difficult to find as the signposts suddenly stop but well worth the effort. Not to busy either unlike the Rialto bridge.

This bridge was undergoing major repairs when I visited the city in April, so hopefully they’re over now or will end soon. It was a real shame — I had to hold my camera way over my head to get it above the plywood covering...More

No I do not, but a restoration site is saying 7 months, and when we were there in March it looks as though phase 1 was complete so that leaves about 5.5 month per schedule, so if all runs as planned probably in September... More
