Mercati di Rialto Reviews
The walking tour of the markets around Rialto bridge was relaxed and we stopped and had espresso and then continued. This is a good walking area to do window shopping. more »
I like a market, especially a fish market. had a nice stroll through here and looked at all the fresh produce. the fish extremely fresh with the shellfish still moving! plenty of spices for pasta... more »
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!
