There are several bridges crossing the Canal Grande but this is the oldest and most well known. Originally built of wood at the end of the 12th Century, the current one in stone, designed by Antonio da Ponte, was built 1554-1591. It is the heart of Venice to some. And until the Academia bridge was built in 1854 it was the only way to cross the Canal Grande on foot. Now you find many shops on the bridge selling all kinds of souvenirs and curiosities. Fresh fruit, vegetable and fish markets line the streets in the bustling neighborhood. There are a number of steps so those with wheelchairs or strollers should beware.
1.During the day, it is very crowded on the bridge and you have to take care of your own safety. It is much better to go there early in the morning or in the evening.2.There are many souvenir stalls on the bridge, and if you do not have any desire to buy, do not bargain nor accost them in any way. If not, they are not going to let you off lightly.

One of my favourite places in the world. Venice was the first part of Italy I'd ever seen and it's stayed with me no matter where I've travelled.
The Rialto Bridge is where I am when I read Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice." There are more than 400 bridges in Venice, and why is the Rialto Bridge a symbol of Venice for more than a hundred years? When I set foot on the bridge against the sunset, overlooking the canal and overlooking the scenery, it really felt its charm.
With the setting sun, this bridge made of marble shows the world's atmosphere from the Renaissance, lingering, no need to deliberately choose the angle, take pictures casually, each one It is wonderful.
The most prestigious bridge on the Grand Canal in Venice, with the highest rate of appearance, is the Rialto Bridge, which is one of the best places to photograph the beauty of Venice. Because the whole bridge was changed from the original wooden bridge to all white marble, the natural extension of the curvature is across the water, the line of sight is wide, large and small boats are moored on the pier, standing on the bridge to shoot the sunset The panoramic view of the Grand Canal at the moment of the fall, the faint golden sprinkling on the water, reflected in the house, put a noble and beautiful coat on this prosperous river, especially warm and beautiful.
Panorama of the bridge, preferably on the water bus.
This bridge is the largest bridge in Venice. There is a floating pavilion at the top of the bridge. There are 24 stalls selling jewellery shops and souvenirs on both sides. There are many restaurants and shops on both sides of the bridge. It is also a Rialto market.
Today, the Rialto Bridge connects shops and restaurants on both sides of the river, while the bridge is crowded with people watching the canal landscape and lounging.
