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

  • This glorious edifice is one of the many cornerstones of an altogether magnificent city on the water. Being the biggest most awe inspiring connection between 2 of the main Islands of the city you are going to cross this bridge a lot but you are going to enjoy it. Many useful point of interest nearby as well!

  • 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.

  • Very beautiful. One of the must while you are in Venice. The shops on both sides are nice and beautiful. Usually very busy place. Don't forget to visit restaurants along both sides of the canal. Very nice picture spot too. Also while you are there don't forget to visit Piazza San Marcos which is walking distance from here.

  • A beautiful piece of architecture with a practical use. Love this bridge in all its glory, the views from it give a real feel of Venice and looking at it is something to stop and take in too. Some interesting shops along the bridge, good for a snoop and the occasional purchase :). Just be careful in high season, it's incredibly busy in the sunshine!

  • Amazing view, and crazy atmosphere. The beggars and sellers are a bit much, especially trying to palm off useless stuff to you. However, the views at day and night from every angle are worth checking out.
