Bridge Fifty-One - Ponte Longo

At the Ponte Longo we paused for an apple and a drink of water before exploring the bridge's immediate area. The atmosphere was more lively here, lots of young people were perched in the sunshine on the water's edge and the cafés were doing good business.

Ponte Longo

A section of the Ca' Foscari university is located in the buildings here, which explained the colourfulness we saw - lots of politically inspired graffiti, more than the normal quota of posters and stickers on every surface, and the dress code of the youngsters changed from elegant or tourist-style to more edgy student fare, T-shirts, shorts, sandals, and bohemian hairstyles.
