An impressive bridge by Santiago Calatrava!
In the summer of 2007, the construction of a fourth bridge based on designs by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava began. On August 11, 2007, the middle section of the load-bearing structure was installed. To do this, the Grand Canal was closed for several hours. On September 11th, 2008 the bridge was inaugurated as "Ponte della Costituzione". The 94-meter-long bridge with steps enables commuters and bus travelers to get to Santa Lucia train station directly from the parking lots and the bus station in Piazzale Roma.

The Ponte della Costituzione is one of the four bridges that span the Grand Canal. It connects Piazzale Roma with the train station. Designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, inaugurated in 2008. The bridge is not barrier-free because of the steps and is problematic with suitcases.

The bridge is the fourth bridge that spans the Grand Canal. It connects the bus station with the train station and was only completed in 2008. I would have found it nicer to stay with the style of old Venice. But we all know that taste can be argued.
