It might seem a little perverse to stand on the Ponte dei Tre Archi and photograph its environment rather than the bridge itself, given its unique three arched design and perhaps it is, but the waterway passing beneath it is one of only three canals here (the narrower channels being rii). 

The Cannaregio Canal doesn’t have the breathtaking vistas that the Grand Canal provides courtesy of its churches and palazzi, but to my eye it still has something on offer from its apartments, businesses and waterlogged quaysides.

It feels more honest.
