From Italy’s centuries-old stone structures to towering steel suspension bridges like San Francisco’s Golden Gate and Japan’s breathtaking Akashi Kailua, there are myriad iconic bridges across the world.
Bridges not just represent man conquering Mother Nature, but they connect people and cultures to the beautiful landscapes that surround us. Some bridges represent some of the most spectacular architectural wonders on the planet, and, whether on foot, by bicycle or by car, there are a host of ways to cross these famous structures.
One of the world’s most famous architectural gems, the towering 227m-tall Golden Gate, opened in 1937 and spans the two mile strait between the city of San Francisco and nearby Marin County. Renowned for its spectacular Art-deco construction and iconic reddish-orange co-louring, the bridge can be crossed by car, bicycle or on foot, and offers spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline, the Pacific Ocean, the rugged Marin headland, and the famous Alcatraz prison.
