If you think that the Pulteney Bridge looks familiar, that is no coincidence. Bridge architect Robert Adam had visited both Florence and Venice, where he would have seen the Ponte Vecchio and the Ponte di Rialto. But Adam’s design more closely followed Andrea Palladio’s rejected design for the Rialto.
