The city of Bridges

bridgevenice2


The City of Bridges is not given its name for nothing...approximately 400 bridges connects Venice. Big, small, high and low bridges over the canals are an everyday walkway for the people.

The bridges are an additional attraction to the tourists, different rail designs and an elevated view of the water allowing for a good view of the gondolas that threads the waterways.

Venice is Europe’s largest urban car free area, unique in Europe in remaining a sizable functioning city in the 21st century entirely without motorcars or trucks.
