Ponte di Rialto, Venice

(9,500+ reviews on the web)
Bridge
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.

  • Unfortunately, a page for renovation was locked, therefore we could witness the revelry on the Canal in one direction only Grande.

  • It is one of the 4 bridges in Venice across the Grand Canal with great views! We crossed it many times through our stay and its always packed with tourists!  more »
  • I think it's the biggest and majestic bridge in Venice, always populated by people that slows the passage above, but stop to admire the Grand canal from this location is truly romantic (especially at night).
