The romantic view mixed with the scent of the old city coming from the ancient years. A lovely place to visit.

the bridge is nice, however, it seems it is under construction, but still it looks great, hopefully the construction is over soon.

We expected something impressive or beautiful, but were treated to a view of the construction scaffolding. The inside of the bridge was lined full of jewellery shops, making it look like just another street, and the walkways were packed full of tourists. It might be better once the restoration is finished.

We visited Venice in July and stayed near the Rialto Bridge. When we were there, there was no real view of the bridge since major renovations were going on. Walking across it, my kids didn't even realize that we'd been on a bridge since it just appears to be steps going up and down through a street full of shops.... More

Sadly set construction at the moment but this bridge is still very beautiful. We took a gondola ride underneath and is one of the beautiful sights in venice. Worth a look!

One of the beautiful places to visit in Venice. I went there last summer in August for 5 days. I recommend to go and see the bridge.

The bridge was under refurbishment, as were many of the surrounding buildings so not really a photo opportunity and compared to Florence's Ponte Vecchio this was rather a disappointment. The shops and the artisans on the Ponte Vecchio are friendly and entertaining, the same cannot be said of the rude and aggressive inhabitants of the Venetian equivalent. Pouring water on... More

This is a stunning bridge that currently has work going on, I expect for important maintenance. Therefore it does feel very much like a building site and would be such a shame if you are making your first visit at the moment. When on the bridge it is very busy. To appreciate this you really need at the side of,... More

If in Venice, one can't miss it; not because of its beauty but because all roads lead to it. This is the widest bridge in the area.
