This bridge is beautiful but it is packed with tourists non stop all year around. There are shops on either side of the bridge but they are mainly tacky shops selling cheap quality souvenirs, not very exciting or interesting. Better to see the bridge from...More

This crossing of the Grand Canal is a real attraction to tourists. Not only are there shops on the bridge (ponte) itself, but a large market and additional stores of all types are nearby. Restaurants are also plentiful overlooking the bridge and canal. We crossed...More

As with most of Venice it’s not great when you’ve got a pushchair. We even thought about ways of not having the pushchair but with an 18 month old we had too much supplies to take around the city. It’s so busy on the bridge...More

Whilst it's one of many bridges in Venice it's worth a visit. Will be overcrowded most of the day but you'll get a good pic at some point. Quaint market on it too but as you can expect over priced.

While viewing the Grand Canal from the midpoint of the Ponte, enjoy the local bazaar of merchants and their wares.

A must place to see in Venice due to its history, but lots of people. Sunset is pretty here, but for quiet go early. For pics and more info, visit etbtralvephotography/blog

If you don't want a 10 deep crowd then go very early in the morning when the shops aren't open and you can stroll leisurely and enjoy your visit.

The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six

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)
