Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Ponte di Rialto
Overlook the Grand Canal from one of Venice's most important landmarks, Ponte di Rialto. Anchoring the historic city center, the iconic bridge is an example of 16th-century architecture, with two steep ramps meeting to form an uncharacteristically high arch of 7.5 m (25 ft). Take a traditional gondola tour of the canal to admire the historic structure from the water. You also can stand in the archways of Venice's oldest canal bridge.

Ponte di Rialto Reviews

The bridge is beautiful, shops are installed in the upper part of it.
Cannot recommend highly enough! This bridge is gorgeous to look off of and you can see the whole riviera out to the ocean. While there are a number of tourists at any given time, early mornings or late evenings are the best times to go get pictures.
Great, iconic place to visit while in Venice. The back of the bridge doesn't give as good a view but us quieter and you weren't at all rushed when taking photos. The front gives a stunning view and is worth a visit but it is very busy. You waited a while to get to the edge of the bridge near the top but it was stunning.
