Boat passing under the interesting Ponte dell Accademia in Venice, Italy in Europe.

The Ponte dell Accademia or Accademia Bridge in Venice, Italy is one of the three bridges which span the Grand Canal. The Accademia Bridge is the most southern of the three and was named for the Accademia galleries on the South Bank of the Grand Canal in Venice.

According to Magno, a chronicler of the Middle Ages, the Venice council suggested building a bridge at this spot in 1488 but it was voted down. It was not until Alfred Neville designed and built the Ponte dell Accademia in 1854 that the idea came into fruition.

This bridge was replaced in 1933 by a higher wooden structure which allowed the vaporettos, also known as water buses, to pass underneath. In 1986, an identical Accademia Bridge was built with steel bracing for more support. Of the three bridges, the Ponte dell Accademia has the most spectacular views of the palaces and buildings of Venice, Italy as it is located on the last bend of the Grand Canal. ... continue below the picture...
