Great buzz here at any time and great photo opportunities. It's always crowded but be patient and you'll get that picture. Good restaurants in the nearby streets.

We saw the bridge while on the water taxi, we decided to view the canal from the bridge later in the day. The shops that line the bridge are mainly holiday trinket shops. Quiet a few steps to climb so recommend flat shoes. Visiting Venice...More

The scene is from a post card. The atmosphere magical. The experience is one in a life time. Simply beautiful.

The Rialto Bridge is spectacular as are the views from it. We couldn't believe the number of small trinket shops on the bridge itself. However very crowded and dogged by rose sellers in the evening who are very forceful. Despite giving a rose seller back...More

The views, the market, the shopping, the opportunities for photos are fantastic from this bridge that was the only point across the canal for the public for many years.

Very pretty bridge but of course heaving with tourists. There are shops on the bridge as well as both streets off of it. Great photo opportunity.

We drove there by car till the city limits and took a water taxi, but if I remember reading correctly you can arrive at the train station and there should be a bus service that takes you there.
When I visited here 30 years ago, vendors sold lambs wool cardigan sweaters on the bridge. Is this still the case? I'm relying on buying some in order to pack less clothing for this trip!
