    The Caposile pontoon bridge is a floating crossing south of the town of the same name, on the last stretch of the river Sile, at the confluence with the Piave Vecchia. It is one of the 7 bridges on boats currently functioning in Italy; allows you to reach the area known as the "Salsi", a long narrow strip of land towards the northern lagoon of Venice.

    From the structural point of view it consists of a steel deck resting on five concrete boats. Its construction, which dates back to the 1960s, allowed the direct crossing of roads (without passing through Jesolo) also allowing the fluvial transit of boats, which in the past were mainly "burci" of considerable size carrying large loads of "litter" "(Marsh grasses) to feed the brick kilns of the Treviso area.

    Even today, during the period from June to August, the bridge respects fixed opening hours.
