One side of the bridge was under construction. We did get a view of the other side which was open and could only imagine how beautiful it will be when it is done. A very central spot and crowded no matter the time of day but still a must see in Venice!

Wasn't too crowded when we were there mid November. Dropped nearby from the water taxis it looked spectacular, still under renovation but I suppose it is necessary , lots of shops and street vendors nearby and goods not that expensive

The Bridge is approximately a quarter of the way along the Grand Canal when setting off from the bus stop area in the west. The Bridge is a large, ornate, white sculpted Bridge with attractive reliefs along its sides. The Bridge is broad and has shops running over it whilst still allowing space for tourists to walk across, stopping to... More

Stand on the bridge and see Venice. The Gondolas and transport boats fill the waterway along the Grand Canal. The Bridge at sunset creates an amazing memory

Our hotel was just alongside this bridge (Hotel Rialto). Good spot as central to all the districts. A breathtaking landmark! Beware the 'rose men' who pretend to give you free roses for your beautiful misses only to swindle you out of 20-40 euros! Can't exactly snatch them out of your significant other's hands! Great restaurants nearby with fresh seafood to... More

the place for me has a strong flavor of the old days, when Venice was the strongest merchant republic, with all it's merchants criss-crossing the bridge, striking deals and planning the overseas trips. In sunny day it's amazing. Btw. lots of tourist crowds and lots of China goods, sold as "genuine Venetian glass". So beware, if you want to buy... More

The Ponte Rialto is undoubtedly a beautiful bridge architecturally but your ability to appreciate it is marred by the collection of cheap tourist stalls on either side and simply the number of people jostling to cross the bridge and take photographs of themselves doing so. It’s an attraction that you have to see while in Venice – just don’t expect... More
