My sister suggested that I follow up on my posting entitled The Most Romantic Bridge in the World with another pictorial on the most famous bridges in the world. So without further adieu here are the nine most beautiful bridges in the world that I have seen and photographed in the last five years.
The Ponte di Rialto spans the Grand Canal in Venice.
The Ponte Vecchio in Florence from the Ponte della Grazie.
You cross this bridge over the Tiber to get to The Vatican.
The Ponte 25 de Abril in Lisbon is the same color as our own Golden Gate Bridge but was modeled after the San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge. To the right is Christo Rei, a replica of the famous Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro.
The Puente de Piedra (Stone Bridge) over the Duero River in Zamora, Spain.
The Manhattan Bridge over the East River in New York. The Brooklyn Bridge is to the right.
Sydney Harbour Bridge from the Parramatta ferry.
The San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge. The boats on the left belong to the San Francisco Fire Department.
