Bridges of Venice : did you know?
My hometown Venice has still visible 417 bridges, of which 72 are private. Among them 300 bridges are made by stone, 60 made by iron, the other 57 made by wood. There are only two bridges without railings (spallette). The first one is located in Torcello and is called Ponte del Diavolo (the Devil’s Bridge), and the second one is private and is located in Rio di San Felice in Cannaregio and it's called Ponte Chiodo. All the ancient bridges in Venice were originally builded without railings.
