A wonderful place to take in the sunset and enjoy the ambiance of the bustling Venice canals, but take lots of money, it is quite expensive to eat here, you are paying for the view as well as the food.
The small bridge is the Ponte Umilta which crosses the Rio Della Salute (canal). The canal crosses the eastern tip of the Dorsoduro peninsula behind Santa Maria della Salute from the Giudecca canal to the Grand Canal.
The whole of Venice and its Lagoon is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
