Love Locks On The Grand Canal

Love Locks On The Grand Canal, Venice, Italy |

The Ponte dell'Accademia is one of only four bridges in Venice, Italy, to span the Grand Canal. It crosses near the southern end of the canal, and is named for the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia. Above, starry-eyed lovers placed padlocks on the bridge, a phenomenon started from a scene in Federico Moccia's 2006 novel, I Want You. Couples write their names on the padlocks, swearing eternal love, and throw the keys into the canal.
