Lonely Planet review

A superb feat of engineering, Antonio da Ponte’s 1592 Istrian stone span cost 250,000 gold ducats to construct – a staggering sum that puts Calatrava Bridge cost overruns into perspective. When crowds of shutterbugs clear out around sunset, the bridge's south side offers a romantic view of black gondolas pulling up to golden Grand Canal palazzi at striped moorings.
