An architectural icons of Venice and one of the most visited tourist attractions of the city. You will never miss this bridge if you are crossing between San Marco and San Polo. It gets really crowded but the view is beautiful.

When in Venice this sight is a must. Very busy but it's obvious why. The views are fabulous. Visit at night too, it's spectacular.

We drove there by car till the city limits and took a water taxi, but if I remember reading correctly you can arrive at the train station and there should be a bus service that takes you there.
