One toke over the line

This is a real pretty bridge especially at sunrise or sunset or any other time of day. Even at night.

Now that all the renovation work is done the Rialto Bridge shines again. Early morning or late afternoon the light conditions are superb.

It is a busy spot by the Bridge with a host of canal side restaurants and bars to sit and watch the world go by. There are a host of shops on the bridge and market stalls not to far away. A must see.

Another must see piece of Venice. The view down the Grand Canal and the beautiful shops, make for a fascinating stop off the vaporetto - a tad unfortunate that there is a Hard Rock café at one end of it - spoils the ambiance a little.

The bridge offers a great photo op, but the atmosphere around the area is bubbling. The fish market is close, the Grand Canal offers great views, water taxis, restaurants, tourist traps and people galore.

To walk over the bridge is an... More
