The main feature of the Carnival of Venice, the renowned yearly festival held in San Marco Square, are the masks! You will find many beautiful and unique masks and costumes when you attend the event in Venice during the holidays.
The first bridge on the tourist attraction, the Grand Canal of Venice that was built was a pontoon bridge known as Ponte della Moneta, which was built in the late 12th century.
It was replaced by a wooden bridge in the mid-13th century due to increased traffic because of the booming trade industry. However, this bridge also collapsed several times. Finally in the late 16th century a stone bridge (the one that is there nowadays) was built known as the Rialto Bridge.
