Rialto Bridge

Thrumming with life, the Rialto Bridge is as important to Venetians today as it was 400 years ago. If there’s one sight in Venice that everyone knows, it’s this bridge – and quite rightly so. Completely spanning the Grand Canal’s impressive flow, the Rialto Bridge was built more than three hundred years before London’s Tower Bridge, at a time when the design was considered too ambitious to succeed.

Centuries later and the bridge is one of Venice’s most romantic sights: a palatial stone span that thrives with energy from the many stalls and shops dotting its length. It’s an essential part of life in the city as it connects the districts of San Marco and San Paolo, and is perhaps the city’s most beautiful bridge. Considering there are more than 400 of them, that’s no mean feat.
