Ponte dell'Accademia or the Academy Bridge

Near the end of the Grand Canal is the Ponte dell’Accademia or the Academy Bridge. It is one of only three bridges that spans the Grand Canal. It makes for an easy crossing for visitors wanting to go to the Peggy Guggenheim Museum and the Accademia Art Gallery. It connects the quarters of San Marco on one side and Dorsoduro on the other. On the Dorsoduro side of the bridge is a vaporetto (waterbus) station, so if you're tired of walking, you can pick up a ride there!

The view of the Grand Canal from the Academy Bridge is indeed grand, and it is often much less crowded than the other bridges over the canal. Also quite handy are the public toilets near the bridge. There is a small cost (have change!) but it's cheaper than buying something at a restaurant just to use their restroom. [more ]
