From the Ponte dei Scalzi, near the foot of the the Grand Canal, we can see the
Ferrovia or Venice
Santa Lucia Railway Station and its Actv
vaporetto platforms and the Scalzi Church.
The Baroque church was constructed in the late 1600s; the Santa Lucia railway
station (the low modern building to the left of the church) opened in 1955.
The stone bridge, which has crossed the Grand Canal since 1934, replaced a
19th Century iron bridge by the British engineer A.E. Neville. It's one of four bridges
that span the serpentine canal, which follows the
course of an ancient river.
