The Rialto bridge we know is quite recent: it was in fact built in 1588 to replace a wooden one with the central mobile part to allow the passage of tree-lined boats. To tell the truth the first bridge was made on boats, replaced by a fixed one; this was destroyed and rebuilt.The most famous bridge in Venice, remained the only one to cross the Grand Canal. It is divided into three ramps by two rows of shops joined to the center by as many arches. The foundations rest on larch boards and elm poles. He replaced the previous wooden drawbridge.

Academy Bridge

The bridge was built during the nineteenth century at the time of the maximum expansion of the use of iron elements. It is special because of the 50 steps up and 50 steps down. The Academy bridge is the last pedestrian bridge of the four bridges that cross the Grand Canal towards the st. Mark Square. It is not the most famous bridge in Venice, but the Accademia Bridge has a beautiful architecture and I think it is a good location to take pictures.

Villa Margherita

The beautiful Villa Margherita, on the Gabriele D'Annunzio waterfront, was built between 1919 and 1920 by the Bolognese architect Mario Vucetich for the noble Guido Alverà. Its imposing structure is surrounded by a large garden, and is characterized by its eighteenth-century style, with strong references to the Baroque.
The window frames and the string courses have shell decorations, inspired by the setting of the Lido, while the wrought iron of the balconies and of the gate are particularly elaborate. Before 1926 the villa passed into the hands of Count Gaetano Marzotto, textile industrialist from Valdagno, who gave it the name of his wife Margherita. At his death, in 1927, it was sold by the heirs and transformed into a condominium from which several apartments were obtained.

The body on the left was added in the seventeenth century by Scamozzi.

Duomo di Vicenza

Founded in the early Christian age, in the 5th century, after the sacking, it was enlarged into a three-nave structure. At the beginning of the seventh century the bishop commissioned the reconstruction that through the various restiggiations and modifications.The current appearance must be largely due to the fifteenth century works with the construction of the Gothic facade, attributed to Domenico da Venezia, and the arrangement of the chapels and the thirteenth-century apse.
After some neo-gothic interventions in the mid-nineteenth century, the cathedral was bombed during the Second World War and the restorations were carried out until 2002.

Palazzo Trecento Treviso

The Palace was built around 1185 as a meeting room for the various bodies of the Municipality of Treviso. In 1944 the Palace was the victim of a bombing that caused serious damage to the structure and to the frescoes in the hall. The Palace, which today hosts important exhibitions and has an exposed brick surface, is made up of two floors: on the ground floor is the loggia perhaps realized by Andrea da Valle, on the upper floor is the living room, illuminated by a series of three-mullioned windows. Internally, the frescoes created between the 14th and 16th centuries by Venetian artists and mostly coats of arms and themes linked to civil power and justice are partially preserved. Worthy of note are the paintings depicting the Madonna with Child and the Saints.

Topinioni on Torre del Capanon

The first documents that attest the beginning of the construction of this tower that was part of the castle, indicate the X century as a date. Today the tower, although lacking the original bells, probably lost in the 16th century during a very violent storm, is 33 meters high. When the castle lost its defensive function, the tower remained the symbol of the city of Feltre.
  From the courtyard you can also look out on the other side where you can see the majestic Belluno Dolomites, a UNESCO heritage site.
