Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Ponte di Rialto
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. Add Ponte di Rialto to your Venice travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Venice attractions planning tool.
