One of the beautiful things to see on this tiny island of Torcello is the Ponte del Diavolo or Devil's Bridge which is located on the walkway into "town," the only walkway on the island which leads to Locanda Cipriani and the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. I risked life and limb to cross it on an icy morning for a view from the other side.
One website tells me that the arch-shaped bridge is one of the oldest and one of very few that maintains a characteristic of old Venetian bridges: no parapets. (I can't attest to the reliability of the site, and I didn't ask anyone on the island.)
Here's that view from the other side:
Soon after I took this a black cat wandered into the frame, and that is exactly when I fled the scene. Often these bridges are great sources of devil legends; I was taking no chances being alone with a black cat near a devil's bridge early in the morning on a nearly-deserted island in the dead of winter. Would you?
