Ponte dell’Accademia is an other of the four bridges crosses the Grand Canal towards its lower, southern end, linking the San Marco district with the Accademia gallery in Dorsoduro.
It offers two of the best views in Venice, looking along the Grand Canal in each direction. On one side lies the dome of Santa Maria della Salute, and on the other is the quieter bend which eventually takes the canal towards the Rialto Bridge.
The 1854 iron bridge was replaced in 1932-33 with the wooden one, which is the actual bridge. This bridge still has much more atmosphere than the other bridges over the Grand Canal, and it is easier to find a peaceful moment here.
