The rialto bridge is a must see for anyone visiting Venice. Not only looks amazing at all times throughout the day and night, but has a great view of the colourful houses along the grand canal. Definitely walk across it.

Even though they were doing repairs to the bridge it was just easy to reach and very beautiful view. A lot of shops with local souvenirs , very romantic and it is place that must be seen.

The Rialto bridge just spectacular. Be warned in peak tourist season very busy. We were there in May. It was under restoration while we were there but it was lovely. sit down at one of the many cafes and take in its beauty.

Costs nothing to walk across. There are stores all along the bridge, wildly overpriced. Lots and lots of people so watch your wallet. But it is the Rialto - enjoy being there and the great views.

If St Mark's Square is the hub of Venice this beautiful landmark is the heart of Venice. Great architectural and engineering marvel with the best view in Venice - hence it is always crowded. Lots of shops and markets close by. The place for your picture.

Most spectacular observed from from the water perhaps from a shuttle boat or from aboard a gondola; the bridge crosses the channel at ist nearest point towards Rialto Market. A central hub for visitors, a must for... More

This is one of the most famous bridges in Vinece. Although the view from top of it is amazing, it is always super crowded. Sometime you have to wait to get to the edge of it to take a snap of the grand canal. But worth the effort, the view is really good. For me the crowd spoils all the... More

It is a very nice bridge and the surrounding area is quite nice to see. It is rather touristy but as is the entire city. The view from the bridge is quite nice and it is worth coming for a look.

The bridge is nice to see and the surrounding area is eye candy however it is super touristy. I would highly recommend going for sunrise as the views are beautiful from there. Thankfully I was there when it was off peak so I didn't run into huge crowds. If you plan to go during summer months I would imagine it... More
