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.

  • Venice is full of bridges, but it is one of the largest and most splendid bridges in many. It is very crowded during the day, so it is difficult to slow down, so it is recommended to go early in the morning or late at night. It's right in front of you by getting off at Therito in Vapolet, but you can get there in a few minutes' walk from Piazza San Marco.

  • It is a nice spot with a great view on the canal but it's so crowded on both side (like most of Venise).  more »

  • Cannot recommend highly enough! This bridge is gorgeous to look off of and you can see the whole riviera out to the ocean. While there are a number of tourists at any given time, early mornings or late evenings are the best times to go get pictures.
  • Great, iconic place to visit while in Venice. The back of the bridge doesn't give as good a view but us quieter and you weren't at all rushed when taking photos. The front gives a stunning view and is worth a visit but it is very busy. You waited a while to get to the edge of the bridge near the top but it was stunning.
