The view from the Rialto bridge is a postcard of Venice. Lots of shopping and crowds but a great place for photos.

Wether you view this by bus or by walking, the bridge is quite stunning, unfortunately so many other people think so, I found that evening time was less crowded, but worth a visit.

Very crowded, but a nice bridge. We found a nice spot to take couple of pictures. But end of the day, not sure what all the hype is about. Worth visiting though.

Great views of the grand canal form both sides of the bridge. Most enjoyable at sunrise before it gets too busy! Photos from sunrise with no one around!

Imagine you're in an Italian movie and take the stroll at sunset. Admire the classic construction and artwork.

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops

Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San

Steps and it’s kind of the highest in bridges on the grand canal. That’s for all bridges across the canals, steps that is. But doable very easily unless you have any physical ailments (bad back and so on)
