Ponte di Rialto, Venice, 30125

The Basics

The Rialto is one of the most famous landmark bridges in Europe, and a popular and crowded Venice attraction connecting the San Marco district, home of St. Mark's Square, to the San Polo district, where Venice's famous fish market has stood for 700 years. The bridge is visited on nearly every walking tour through the "Floating City," along with other historic tourist attractions like the nearby Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale), Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri), and St. Mark's Basilica (Basilica di San Marco). For a unique view of the bridge far from the crowds, consider booking a Venice gondola ride or Venice Grand Canal evening boat tour to see the bridge from the water.

Venice Food Tour Including Rialto Market and Cicchetti
We wanted to understand more about the food history of Venice and this tour was amazing. A lovely mix of history, food and locations within Rialto, st marks and cannaregio. The story of Chichetti and Tramaezzeni as well as spritz and cuttlefish ink were all fold while eating the goodies. The inclusion of a gondola traghetto ferry ride from Rialto over to Cannaregio was a great way of experiencing a gondola. Our guide was informative and very good.

Private Gondola Ride in Venice Bacino Orseolo Rialto
We were somewhat skeptical about doing the touristy Gondola Ride. We are so glad we did this. Seeing Venice from the water is priceless. We love loved loved this and will do it again when back in Venice. The only reason we did not rate this 5 stars is our gondolier was on the phone most of the time. Even with that.. this was a highlight of our trip. Would highly suggest you take the time and when in Venice...

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The bridge is lined with tiny shops and leads to the San Polo neighborhood, known for its market and gourmet stores; it’s an ideal spot for souvenir shopping.

How to Get to There

When to Get There

The islands of Venice are crowded with tourists during the popular summer months, and it can be a challenge to navigate the crowds on the bridge. Take an early morning or late evening stroll if visiting between April and October, or book a private tour by boat along the Grand Canal.
