You expect something grand and beautiful, you get something absolutely average, even might say disappointment. First of all, it is extremely crowded. Not just the bridge itself, but all the sorroundings. You will not see anything. Nohing. Nada. Due to the fact that a huge mass of tourists are flowing everywhere, you will not find a fix point of view,... More

A beautiful view but so crowded it's tough to enjoy. A fantastic view on a summers day just be prepared to be barged, pushed and shoved for a spot on the bridge, but worth it 🖒

The bridge, once a functional trading site, has become a distribution site for trinkets along with a minor amount of quality items. For example, check the cameos. One after another the same. Laser cut. Handcrafted gone. The bridge is best seen from one of the other bridges.

We were told before hand about this bridge and the people made it out to be some sort of golden gate Bridge if magnificent architecture, but when you turn up it's like any other nice bridge in Venice. OK so we were told the history...get it but still only a bridge lol.

Lots of gondolas and many small side streets but exteremly crowded! Hard to stand on the bridge to take pictures. Maybe try early morning or late night. Use yr hotel washroom before head out to Rialto....

Walk up it, look over it, glide under it in a gondola. Beautiful structure and the sense of history of the place is inspiring. Lots of crowds but everyone was very respectful as as soon as each got their picture they quickly moved out of the way for the next family to get their special shot.

This bridge is out of this world - the photos come out lovely. Unfortunately, we travelled while there were building works being completed, but still stunning.

Last time we were in Venice we walked across the Rialto. This time we had the luxury of viewing the Rialto bridge from the water. We were fortunate enough to be in a water taxi. The driver was kind enough to slow down and stir us right through the middle. Only know I realised the size of the bridge and... More
