  • Under two buildings in neo-Gothic style built in 1907 is this magnificent fish market. Since 1173 the Venetian Republic regulated the sale of fish with an edict that fixed rules for trade, there is still a white marble table that indicated the minimum recommended lengths permitted for sale.

  • Very cute and quaint market of Venice ordered suggestive to the place in which is great for shopping if you are staying in an apartment and you want to cook Italian food worth a visit

  • We spent four days in Venice, and we have prepared the new year's dinner at the Rialto market we could eat the bar and scampi, eating vegetables, fresh cheese, all had met to spend a wonderful evening and price really very reasonable.

  • Just a great place to go and see..When we went the amount of flies and bugs landing on and burrowing in the meat and fish would make me not want to purchase any meats but the fruits were a deal!
  • A must visit tourist attraction in Venice. A lovely place with lots of small luxury shops but there are souvenir shops as well. Walking here in the early morning before the buzz was really amazing.
  • It is small. Not huge. If you compare to victoria market. Actually since venice has lots shops, the one that they sell in the market is actually similar. But price wise, compare with the shops maybe a bit cheaper but not all. Mostly all the same.
  • Bought a bunch of huge oriental lilies and carried it all the way back to my room near San Mark's Piazza..smiling all the ways..the smell was heavenly in my room for the whole week I was there..
  • It's a nice historical place. Often very crowded. Prices are a bit high
