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.

Loved Venice... Go in the winter months it's so peaceful and romantic. The streets were empty along with all the major tourist attractions. We had lunch Inna sandwich shop and it was £15 euros!! Looking forward to my next visit. You can park you car in the multi storey car park near by it is €29 for the whole day.
Very busy but amazing bridge over the grand canal. One of the highlights of a trip to Venice. Last time we were here it was covered in scaffolding but now all restored and looking beautiful. Lots of small shops on the bridge. Great views in either direction. Does get very very busy. Great little cafe just to the left of the Hotel Rialto for a coffee or a Spritz!
