Have you ever crossed this kind of bridge? #Venice🏣

Whether it is the bridge of Rialto or Bridge of Sighs, Venice is also as famous for its bridges as for its gondolas, palaces and churches: with over 400 bridges in such a small area!

Originally, there were not actual bridges in Venice. At best, there were wooden footbridges without steps whose construction and maintenance was the responsibility of the neighbors. During this era, many in Venice moved about on horseback.
