Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Ponte di Rialto
Overlook the Grand Canal from one of Venice's most important landmarks, Ponte di Rialto. Anchoring the historic city center, the iconic bridge is an example of 16th-century architecture, with two steep ramps meeting to form an uncharacteristically high arch of 7.5 m (25 ft). Take a traditional gondola tour of the canal to admire the historic structure from the water. You also can stand in the archways of Venice's oldest canal bridge.

É impensabile andarea a venezia e non passare da questo punto,cinsiglio di visitarlo al crepuscolo anche se sicuramente sara affollato.. more »It is unthinkable to go to Venice and not having to this point, extension to inspect it at dusk though surely will be crowded ...
Passeamos por esta ponte e ela é lindíssima... Com uma vista incrível, um ponto turístico que vale a pena ser visitado. Lotada o tempo todo de turistas... Rs Tem que ter paciência... more »We walked by this bridge and she is beautiful. With an incredible view, a tourist spot that is worth to be visited. Packed all the time with tourists. RS have to be patient.
Nice tourist place. I loved the layout of the bridge, how it hangs beautifully over the Grand Canal. I loved the little shops spread all around the place where you can fund some real gems. And then there's the fish market that's not very far from there. Rialto Bridge is a lively place and I could sit by the waters edge and take in the scenery all day - because in the midst of the bustling, I find a serenity that calms the soul. Your visit to Venice is not complete without taking in the views of the Rialto Bridge.
Really nice views from both sides of this famed bridge, but it can get VERY crowded, even in the off season. Otherwise, it would be a great spot to take a few moments to appreciate the beauty of Venice and people watch. I'd recommend going early morning or after dark for that reason.
