Bridge Fifty-Three - Ponte de l'Avogaria

We now leave the sun-drenched Fondamenta Zattere and head down  the cafe-lined Fondamente San Sebastian. We resist a sign at a restaurant saying they offered a generous choice of 37 different types of pizza, and turning right onto Calle de l'Avogaria we enter a quiet neighbourhood with hardly a soul in sight.

While our next bridge, the Ponte de l'Avogaria is a simple brick and stone bridge the canal scene from its crest is classic Venice - water as clear as a mirror, colourful buildings reflecting in the canal, and motionless boats anchored along the canal side. Another bridge, the Ponte Sartoria, which isn't on our itinerary, completes the picture.
