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. Add Ponte di Rialto to your Venice travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Venice attractions planning tool.

  • Best looked at from the quiet side, rather than being on it. Although you could possibly get a nice photo or 2 of the view of the Grand Canal. The green wooden shutters do not do the architecture any....  more

  • A masterpiece in all its unreal reality. How someone thought out to build a bridge like this is surreal but here it is.

  • The best experience in Venice, both from the bridge and from the gondola below. Iconic and majestic at the same time. If you visit on the first Sunday of June, there are rowing competition and the ambiance changes as there are no water buses or, taxis. Highly recommended.
  • It's beautiful. But too much crowded. You'll find good restaurant at every corner. I wanted to try Gondola ride but it's 80€ for 1 person. You can find other options online for enjoying the view. It's better to book in advance online because I couldn't find it in the same day. My overall experience was good. Oh! It's 60€ for water taxi which took us 1.5km further. I know it's crazy but it's Venice 🙂 and once in a lifetime experience 👍
