As with most bridges the view from down river looking at the bridge are more impressive than the view from the bridge looking downriver. However, a couples selfie is a must from... More

The Rialto bridge is one of famous bridges in Venice. It's beautiful. When I went in October 2015, there was some construction but your still able to cross. One of the beautiful view of the bridge is from the boat.

Close to station and large bridge with some appeal. I did not see many people take its photo so perhaps like me it just seemed more functional than the smaller pedestrian bridges.

I would recommend getting a gelato and sitting below the Rialto! Alternatively getting a water bus and taking photos from below - much more beauty than above.

The Rialto bridge is amazing however it is crowded during the day mostly as it gets later it becomes less crowded and there are great photo opportunities here. Highly recommended to see if in Venice.

The view from above the bridge is part of the Venice experience that every visitor to this visit city must experience.

It is a beautiful bridge, with a beautiful view of the canals, however it was really full and it was on restoration, we cannot see too much.

A very nice view of the grand canal...when you're not being pushed around by thousands of tourists. Come here, enjoy the view from the bridge and move on!

There was scaffolding and tarpaulins covering some aspects and the bridge itself was so packed with tourists it was very uncomfortable and dificult to move on or off. We took some pics from a cafe down the canal just to show we had seen it but it certainly wasn't a highlight of our visit.
