Last armless bridge

Last armless bridgeThis is the last armless bridge in Venice (meaning are no railings/walls for safety). This bridge is just down the street from the apartment Mama rented when she first fell in love with Venice.

Here’s a close-up look…Close up of armless bridge Can you imagine carrying groceries home over that? Oy. A late night stumbling home might end up in the canal below!

  1. That is one of the few private bridges in Venice that is named – Ponte Chiodo (nail, as in pin, not finger). Jane and Renato (Katharine Hepburn and Rossano Brazzi) crossed it to his home (and fireworks!) in ‘Summertime’.
