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.

    It’s a nice enough bridge but sort of a tourist trap.
