Situated close to the Rialto Bridge, the market was a hive of activity! We arrived at the vaporetto stop and spent some time wandering around the fruit, vegetables and fish stalls. It was great to see the varieties on offer and the prices. We liked...More

The Rialto market was not that impressive as markets go. Mostly fish and produce with cheap t-shirts and souvenirs. Spend your time in Venice and avoid this market.

I happened upon the market by chance later in the afternoon when cleaning had begun. The smell was a bit overpowering and the floor a bit slippery as the cleaning had started in some areas. It was nice to see so many fresh fruits and...More

One of the joys of visiting, villages, towns or Cities, is surely the lovely markets...sadly in the UK these are dying off. We missed the fish market unfortunately, but the veg produce was beautifully presented, and the real joy is spotting something unusual. Worth a...More

No color no vibe no movement no interest. Venice is hard up for attractions if this is one. It was redeemed a little by the displays of local and imported produce.

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
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
