Ponte di Rialto, Venice

4.0
#4 of 128 in Sightseeing in Venice
Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

  • Must visit when in Venice, as it's a good place to take photos. Probably 20 minutes walk from the main train station.  more »
  • Visited this twice during our stay. Reasonably priced food near to the bridge too which was an added bonus.  more »
  • The Rialto bridge is surprising if you've not done your research beforehand. There's more to it than just a bridge and worth spending some time admiring it, if you can cope with the hordes of tourists  more »

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
