Is a place you must visit if you are willing to see the real living in Venice. Not only the touristic point.

We always try to visit the local markets to get some fresh fruit and see the unusual assortment of fruits, vegetables, and fish. There was a great variety to choose from with plenty of local color.

Rialto in venice is a hub for tourists and during the day can be hideously busy with the bridge rammed with people taking pictures. So to get the best out of this area get out early morning for uninterupted pictures and views from the bridge....More

A lovely little market. We managed to get a variety of different fruit and vegetables; all of which were fresh and delicious! It is only open in the morning and can get a little crowded so it's best to get there as early as possible.

Go there to enjoy the market wonders, especially the fish market stands. You'll see tourits, of course, just like me ... but you also people from Venice who go there for their shopping, talking with the market vendors.

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San

There are plenty of flowers, both fresh and dried, at the market. I saw many shops nearby and others in town that had flowers. It is always best to go early in the day for the largest selection of both food and flowers! Good... More
