Rialto Bridge - Review

Soaring over the Grand Canal, and connecting San Polo and San Marco, the Rialto Bridge is Venice’s pride and joy. After several wooden bridges in the medieval ages collapsed, Anthony da Ponte took three years to leave behind this beautiful architectural marvel. Once upon a time, merchants would set up day long shops here… now it’s tourists. The bridge’s high arch (7.5 meters) is due to the galley ships that had to pass under it in the days of old. It’s easily one of Venice’s most photographed sights, and is especially fetching at Sunset. There are about 15 stalls still right on the bridge, and the indomitable Rialto Market is of course, right next to it. If you’re on land, and not passing by under it, keep your wallet handy – this is shopping central.

Rialto Bridge is one of the tourist attractions in Venice Itinerary 2 Days. You must visit this amazing tourist attraction in Venice.

Rialto Bridge, Venice Reviews

  • One of those most surreal experiences in my life. I used this bridge to get around often, it is a masterpiece in both style and function. It serves as a hub to many street vendors. Definitely check them out for souvenirs for your loved ones. There are excellent nearby restaurants along the Grand Canal that provide an excellent view of it as well. Even in pictures it looks unreal. It's stands true to the test of time.

  • Amazing views, iconic structure, and famous landmark. Just don't go in the high season as you'll be bumping and jostling into a gazillion other people non-stop. Of course the high season also happens to be the hottest time of the year. That's the time you don't want to go unless you want to o get burnt to a crisp by the sun and you want to be dripping in rivers of your own sweat and inundated with the smell of sweat of every one else around you.

  • Wonderful place to just wander around and pop in and out of shops. There is also a great selection of restaurants and food + patio seating. The bridge itself is also very Sen if and you can take many beautiful photos here. Every other day they host a market near the Rialto bridge which is worth checking out.

  • Pros: 1. Great place for sightseeing and enjoying the canals of Venice. 2. Suitable for photograph taking, especially in the evening/night. 3. Many accessible water bus and other vehicles from there, as this place is considered as the most important spot of Venice canal system. Cons: 1. A bit hard to find. Way there, especially from "the other side" of canal can be tricky and takes a mile away. 2. Too many people jam-packing the bridge, makes it very hard to have a good spot on doing anything you want. 3. Shops there close early, circa 9pm-10pm.

  • This bridge looked quite unique and beautiful. It was pretty crowded as should be expected in Venice. It offers a good view of the Grand Canal with gondolas and boats moving slowly under it. I personally like visiting this place after sunset to see the small businesses with outdoor seating and the smell of Italian food, the lights and the magical atmosphere. There are shops and restaurants on both sides of the bridge and it does quite feel like you are walking from one area to a different area. Walking along the canal and exploring the smaller canals with short bridges over them is quite an experience and is definitely a must visit! The Rialto bridge is a must visit.
