Great place to visit. Ponte is always full of people but it worths to wait few minutes to take a good place with an amazing view. We had a small picnic there under the bridge by the canale grande, beers and some local snacks taste much better there! :)

What used to be a wooden bridge turned into this white limestone bridge resting on 2x6000 petrified wooden poles. It is one of Venice favorites because of its size but it also is pretty amazing architecture. Walk along the Canal Grande on the river bank opposite from San Marco for the best views!

It's difficult to know which is best... the view of the Ponte di Rialto from the sides of the Grand Canal or the view down the Grand Canal from standing on the bridge. They're both stunning either way - you should come back to this bridge several times during your stay to take in the views with the sun at... More

Lovely to view, but get there early. It suffers from its celebrity as it's very busy all day. Quite steep going both up and down and care is needed.

They say that Rialto was the only bridge across the Grand Canal. When we were there one end was covered and seemed under repair. You cross below the bridge when you come or go to the Venezia Santa Lucia railway station from the Rialto jetty. The bridge is always packed, even night as everyone wants a photograph. The view from... More

A very beautiful and unusual bridge crossing the canal grande in Venice. Picturesque with shops along each side and great views up and down the canal. However, always busy as you'd expect.

We visited beautiful Venice and stayed in the Rialto Hotel.Unfortunately the Rialto bridge is still undergoing refurbishment either end so photos didn't come out as great as planned.Its still a very pretty bridge and flocked by tourists.

The rialto bridge is a must see for anyone visiting Venice. Not only looks amazing at all times throughout the day and night, but has a great view of the colourful houses along the grand canal. Definitely walk across it.

Even though they were doing repairs to the bridge it was just easy to reach and very beautiful view. A lot of shops with local souvenirs , very romantic and it is place that must be seen.
