On the Ponte degli Scalzi bridge in Venice, Italy.

The Ponte degli Scalzi ("bridge of the barefoot [monks]"), is one of only four bridges in Venice, Italy, to span the Grand Canal. A stone arch bridge, designed by Eugenio Miozzi, it was completed in 1934, replacing an Austrian iron bridge. It connects the sestieri of Santa Croce and Cannaregio. On the north side, Cannaregio, are the Chiesa degli Scalzi (Church of the Barefoot or Discalced Monks) and the Santa Lucia railway station. The south side, Santa Croce, is close to the Piazzale Roma bus station. (Text based on Wikipedia).

On the Ponte delle Guglie, one of only two bridges spanning the Cannaregio Canal in Venice, Italy.

"It lies near the western end of the canal, by the Venezia Santa Lucia railway station.

An earlier wooden bridge was built in 1285. It was replaced by the current stone and brick bridge in 1580. It was restored in 1641 and 1677, and was totally rebuilt in 1823 at which time spires were added. Further restoration took place in 1987 with the addition of metal handrails, stone steps, and access for the disabled. The spires lie at each end of the bridge. A carved balustrade runs on either side of the walkway, and gargoyles decorate its arch. It is the only bridge in Venice adorned with spires from whence it takes its name ("Bridge of Spires").

For those arriving on foot from Piazzale Roma or the Venezia Santa Lucia railway station, the bridge leads into the area of the Venetian Ghetto and the Strada Nova that leads to Piazza San Marco.

The bridge itself is located just before the point where the Cannaregio Canal flows into the Grand Canal, just inside the bend that leads to the Rialto Bridge." (Text from Wikipedia).
