Create an itinerary including 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.

  • Best to view the bridge from the water. The crowds are simply too large to enjoy standing on the bridge and viewing the sights or trying to absorb the vibe of history.

  • Lovely picturesque bride with great views. However, there are many other bridges in Venice that are just as nice and not half as busy. Worth seeing to ‘tick off’ but don’t stick around.
