Interesting architecture as well as a work of art, this bridge is beautiful and iconic for Venice. Great photo opportunities to be had, although more of the Canal than the bridge itself. It's also very crowded and a good spot is hard to obtain in...More

If the wouldn’t be so many tourist, you could really enjoy the architecture and the view you get over the grand canal .

We visited the Rialto a number of times. Photos during the day and photos at sunset. Lots of great stalls when you cross over the bridge which are reasonably priced and lots of restaurants close by - some better value than others.

Quite possibly, one of the best views in all of Venice, from atop the Rialto bridge. The usual crowds, grat you. But the view from the top...is really breathtaking. Further more, along the banks, there`s a handful of excellent restaurants., like Terrazza Sommariva. Enjoy.

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San

Steps and it’s kind of the highest in bridges on the grand canal. That’s for all bridges across the canals, steps that is. But doable very easily unless you have any physical ailments (bad back and so on)
