The Nine Most Beautiful Bridges in the World

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.

The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

  1. I have seen almost all the same bridges! Like minded people must travel to the same places : ) Great photos and post!

    • Thanks for visiting my blog! I enjoyed visiting yours, too and especially liked those sunset photos of October 4th. We also have a bucket list and have been to four places that are on yours: Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Niagara Falls and Portugal.

  2. Great photos! Great post! We have (almost) been in the same bridges!

    • Thanks for dropping by! I enjoyed reading about your trip to Italy and viewed your Flickr photos. We were in Milano in 2009 and photographed the same places you saw. The Duomo nearly knocked my socks off when I first saw it from the Metro stairs!

    I beikeve I commented to this a day or so ago, but on this second view just wanted to re-note that I have been to 6 of these wonderful bridges, as we bot apparently share an appreciation.

    The above comment was done in haste with a frantically barking dog. The correct wording should have been “believe” and “as we apparently share a similar appreciation of bridges!” (or something like that!) M :-0
