Being the only other true canal in the city, the Cannaregio Canal is somewhat broader than most and so presented a greater challenge for the bridge builders.  Consequently the three arched bridge has become a local landmark giving its name to the nearby vaporetto stop and the hotel that overlooks the canal.  A shame therefore that when the tide is high, there is insufficient space for the vaporetti to pass beneath it!

The bridge has been the subject of many images during its lifetime, but I don’t get it personally.  I walked by without the temptation to lift my lens.

Instead I carry on to the San Giobbe campus of the University home of the Economics faculty; quite a contrast with the Ca’ Foscari that gives the University its name, nevertheless the repeating pattern of its buildings gives a shot with plenty of perspective.

And more than three arches.
