Accademia, closest to Piazza San Marco, above (2); Rialto, below (2); and Constitution: 3 of 4 long and tall bridges that cross the Grand Canal.
The Rialto Bridge seems to achieve an architectural optical illusion, for it is far larger than any photo would indicate.
Constitution and Scalzi (not pictured) are near the rail station.

Construction Boats and Barges
The gigantic construction barge with 4 (or maybe 5) normal-sized loaded cement trucks is delivering material for a single day's labor. At some point, every bit of cement will be transferred to wheel barrows and trundled by an army of strong laborers into an incredibly expensive historic building rehab project.
The barge had to pass beneath either one or two pedestrian bridges, depending on from which direction it came into the city.
Access: Docks and Steps
