It's a good place but if you are in Venice, then you will be able to see lots of similar bridges here. If you have time then visit this place.

Couldn't see the bridge in all its glory as it's currently undergoing restoration. Shame, but I'm sure we'll be back to see it again in the future.

They were working on the bridge so I don't think I saw it in all its glory, however I loved the market on the bridge to buy little trinkets and crepes you can buy from the stall were delicious. The view of the grand canal and surrounding areas is lovely. It does get very busy here though and was hectic... More

Just go. I am here for the carnevale. You must come to Venice! The Rialto is a connecting bridge which takes you towards the train station if you are coming from San Marco. Very busy with tourists as expected.

On our way back to our hotel from Harry's Bar we were hoping to get some nice sunset pictures at the Rialto Bridge. Unfortunately on this trip the bridge was covered in wood as construction was being done, so one of the most iconic structures in Venice couldn't be nicely photographed. This is just the chance you take when you... More

I guess you have to see this location when in Venice but really it has no endearing qualities....under construction, dirty and full of tourist junk for sale like all of Venice !

A bit disappointed as there was major construction work going on & due to the reduced footpath just so much traffic. Although you can squeeze out a bargain at any number of souvwmir stores that are in the vicinity.

It's lovely and all but there's construction everywhere so I see it a pointless if you with pics but otherwise the markets and shops on/over the bridge are wicked!

On the grand canal so is easily spotted from a river taxi or boat. Currently, it is only an average attraction as it significantly covered up due to restoration works.

One of the most beautiful attraction in Venice. A landmark! Full of shops and life. You can buy worthless trinkets or nice onyx cameos.
