We came to the bridge to look at the beautiful scenes of the Grand Canal. It was great to see and have a quick photo but not much else there. You can stop at one of the many restaurants along the canal for lunch/dinner or coffee. You have to go and see it but there's not much time spent there.

Another pearl of Venice, Rialto is a must see. Not necessarily to shop (because it will likely be expensive), but definitely to browse around. Stroll through it, walk up and down the streets nearby and enjoy gondoliers drifting by in the Grand Canal.

It's pretty and worth seeing. We saw it from a gondola and walked across it. Nothing to get too excited about but worth seeing whilst in Venice

Each time we have been to Rialto, always very busy, no matter what time of day or year! Oct 2016 still doing one side renovating, but still worth visit. Lots of shops of all kinds in this area.
