When you go, look for the “lovers’ locks,” or the padlocks engraved with couples’ names and locked onto the railings.

  • This was for me the best view in all of Venice and I literally could have spent hours just sitting here and watching the city go by around me. When we went there were not many tourists and we had a chunk of the bridge to ourselves. It was absolutely stunning and will be for me the picture in my head in when I think back to what Venice looks like.
  • Beautiful city! Get your glad rags on and snap snap snap. You'd be silly not to get tons of photos. And If you're me and have a brilliant mister to take photos of you then lucky You! ;). Beautiful in the summer( be ready to walk lots FYI)
