Ponte dell'Accademia Tours

The Ponte dell’Accademia spans the southern end of Venice’s beautiful Grand Canal between the Galleria dell’Accademia in Dorsoduro and Campo San Vidal in San Marco. As one of only four bridges crossing the canal, it has had several incarnations since the original steel structure was constructed in 1854. This was replaced by a wooden bridge designed by Eugenio Miozzi in 1933, which in its turn was deemed unsafe and removed. Today’s version is identical in construction to Miozzi’s, crafted out of wood in a single arched span but with additional steel supports, and it was erected in 1984. 

The bridge is the perfect spot to catch views of the church of Santa Maria Salute and a good vantage point from which to observe the festivities at Venice’s annual Lenten carnival. Latterly the craze for lovers placing locks on bridges in European cities has taken hold here; the Venetian authorities fear for the structure of the bridge and are trying to clamp down on the phenomenon.

Practical Info

Dorsoduro, Venice. The Accademia vaporetto and ferry stations are next to the bridge on the Dorsoduro side.
