Ponte di Rialto, Venice

4.1
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.

  • Loved Venice... Go in the winter months it's so peaceful and romantic. The streets were empty along with all the major tourist attractions. We had lunch Inna sandwich shop and it was £15 euros!! Looking forward to my next visit. You can park you car in the multi storey car park near by it is €29 for the whole day.
  • Very busy but amazing bridge over the grand canal. One of the highlights of a trip to Venice. Last time we were here it was covered in scaffolding but now all restored and looking beautiful. Lots of small shops on the bridge. Great views in either direction. Does get very very busy. Great little cafe just to the left of the Hotel Rialto for a coffee or a Spritz!
  • Rialto Bridge is so pretty! First of all who doesn’t want to take a picture or just go to one of the places where Spider-Man Far From Home was recorded? Yeah, it’s amazing! But forgetting about the movie, the place is very simple and amazing! There are some little stores to buy souvenirs and it’s a great place to take an awesome picture. If you go to Venice, you must visit this place! It’s easy to find, there are indicators on the walls.
  • It's the touristy things to do but really the better views are of the bridge not on it. Once you are in the bridge stick to the middle row and check out all the wonderful little shops. I picked up a cameo from a shop that has been on the bridge for 4 generations and is still family run.
  • Lovely setting and great views. Obviously gets crowded as all the tourists flock there. Worth going to the nearby department store to see the view from their terrace roof. Its free but you have to reserve a 15 minute time slot online.
