Realto Bridge Views in Venice - Keep Calm and Wander

Rialto Bridge is the oldest bridge in Venice that connects San Marco and San Polo areas. It was first but in the 12th century and has been rebuilt so many times since then. There’s no doubt that Rialto Bridge is the most famous bridge and most photogenic of all 4 bridges in the Grand Canal. You can’t speak of Venice without mentioning the Realto Bridge.

Today, no tourists would miss crossing the bridge and leave his footprints without standing on it. It has become one of the city’s most-visited tourist attractions.

As you can see, Rialto Bridge is a covered bridge, which is a good thing, especially under the summer heat.

However, due to constant foot traffic and camwhoring tourists, you might not be able to litter here for a long time. Don’t be selfish. Give others a chance to take their own photos.

Venice’s Rialto Bridge and Market

Rialto Bridge Venice - Carlos MeliaThe Rialto Bridge is one of the four bridges along the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. It is the oldest bridge across the canal, and was the dividing line for the districts of San Marco and San Polo.

I came to visit before I lunch at the lovely, recently opened, Aman Grand Canal, which is only steps away. Like Ponte Vecchio is to Florence, Ponte di Rialto is to Venice.

This bridge dates to 1181, originally built out of wood, like it was painted on the Miracle of the Cross at the Ponte di Rialto, also known as The Healing of the Madman painting by Italian Renaissance artist Vittore Carpaccio.

It is a fabulous spot for photos, and if you can… take a private riva along the Grand Canal and cross under the bridge. You will get AMAZING photo moments.

Now the biggest surprise was to discover the Rialto Mercato or Rialto Market. It takes place from early in the morning to around 1PM. See locals and foreigners flock to shop and enjoy the real daily Venetian life. Rialto Bridge and Market are a MUST see and visit spot of Venice.
