Accademia Bridge

from: Fisheye Venice


A vaporetto station is on the southern or left bank of the Grand Canal, just to the left of the Accademia Bridge in this photo. You can buy waterbus tickets at the Actv booth. Validate your ticket in the yellow stamping machine before boarding the vaporetto.

You'll also find a public lavatory just beneath the bridge.

photoPizzeria Accademia, on the right side of the bridge's steps, has outdoor tables facing the Grand Canal year-round. (I haven't eaten there, but the authors of Chow! Venice recommend it, and the prices are reasonable for the location.)

Inset photo: The operator of a newsstand by the Accademia deserves credit for helping to keep his city clean: After a dog regurgitated on the pavement, the news vendor produced a broom, dipped it in the Grand Canal, and swept away the dog vomit.
