  • beautiful, original market without the very large tour run near the Rialto Bridge on the Grand Canal. There is plenty of fresh fish, fruit and vegetables at reasonable prices. Ringsrum there are also bakeries. From the market you can also translate with a gondola (Traghetto) for 2€ to the other shore.

  • Apparently, the market is nowhere near as bustling as it used to be, but that makes it kind of nice. EVERYTHING IS SUPER FRESH! My only wish was a kitchen to cook in, but I was on vacation. Lots of interesting sights and sounds. Beware of the seagulls. They're strong and always hungry!
  • We had a lot of fun walking around the market. We ended up buying some sun-dried tomatoes and some Pancetta to take home. If you like markets - this is definitely recommended!
