The bridge is nice to see and the surrounding area is eye candy however it is super touristy. I would highly recommend going for sunrise as the views are beautiful from there. Thankfully I was there when it was off peak so I didn't run into huge crowds. If you plan to go during summer months I would imagine it... More

I have been to Venice a lot over the years, and the city is a magnet for me with its beautiful architecture, stunning views and food. This Ponte di Rialto is so impressive and represents Venetian architecture at its best. The bridge and the surrounding street are always crowed, but take the time to explore the bridge and the many... More

Of course it is crowded. It's one of those places that draws you like a magnet. Bask in the sheer exuberance....everyone is feeling it.

My wife and I walked over and went under this beautiful bridge on many occasions. In my view its best to see this bridge from the ACTV water bus at night when its lit up..simply stunning. The other way is to take a few photo's from the bridge itself looking up the Canal Grande. The bridge is undergoing restoration at... More

When you are near the grand canal you cannot miss the stunning Rialto bridge! Such a grand structure and usually full of tourists! We were lucky being winter that it was relatively empty. Come here in the evening for some lovely pictures with loved ones.

Although the present bridge is not the original , it is a beautifully elegant structure , with a carved Annunciation scene on one side. There are two sets of steps on either side from which you can gaze down the Grand Canal and a wider set in the middle from which to browse the shop windows. It is a vibrant... More

You have to visit the Rialto bridge area and take a few pictures at least at couple of times, if you are in Venice. The bridge was very crowded each time we were on it, but still fun. The area around here is lively and there is much to watch. Restaurants facing this area are probably overpriced.
