The Ponte della Costituzione is the fourth and the newest bridge that stretches across the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. The bridge was designed by Santiago Calatrava and was opened in 2008. The bridge is an arched truss bridge and sparked controversy in the city when it was implemented as it had no wheelchair access it also doesn't really fit with the city's architecture and stands out as a modern build.
The bridge is situated near the train station of Venice at the eastern end of the city. It is also close to one of the city's major car parks ‘San Marco’.
Opening Times and Admission
The bridge is a public bridge and is open to the public to cross for free daily. Wheelchair access was added to the bridge in 2010 in the form of cocoons that transport you over the bridge.
