The Entrance of the Arsenale

The entrance of the Arsenale is across a small bridge over a narrow canal. Officially the canal is closed to traffic, if not for any other reason that it is too narrow and the bridge too low for most boats.

Most of the navy people guarding the entrance don’t mind our passing under the bridge, but every once in a while some particularly obnoxious official will claim that the area under bridge is military even if the canal is clearly public and well outside the marked military area.

Still haven’t seen a crab in uniform under there, and they’re plentiful, so I don’t believe the annoyed officials and pass anyway.
