This place has been on my bucket list for quite a while. Do your research and prioritize the things you want to see because there is too much to see in 1 week. Prices on food can be cheap or expensive depending on your choices. We stayed near the Piazza San Marco which is definitely worth spending time and also... More

This area is so beautiful but so nuts with so many tourists traps (don't go to any restaurant with pictures outside, not only is the food gross, but theres a huge service fee. Try and stay away from the over populated areas in Venice, thats where all the tourists are. Venice is very walkable so don't be afraid of exploring... More

The Ponte di Rialto is a great spot for taking great pictures. It's always busy with a lot of tourist just overlooking to the Great Canal. Wonderful shops nearby.

An absolute must on a visit to Venice you can stand and watch the gondolas, stop for a coffee or a glass of wine, or shop in the boutiques - history and beauty all in one.

It is one of the must see things in Venice. The sad things is that abusive sellers bothering tourists for selling fake bags, selfie stickers, and even shop selling memories made in China? It should be kept more to the view of visitors and less a place for business.

We only viewed from the canal but with the sun shining down looked down beautiful. We could see it was busy from the shores so din't walk over but others in our party did who said the view down the canal was lovely.

While taking a stroll through Venice make sure you venture over this bridge. There are many bridges within Venice of infinite variety. This is one of the larger and extremely well maintained so is even more visually stimulating.

The view at the top of the bridge is very nice, but if you don't like the smell of smoke or a lot of people I wouldn't recommend going here (if those two things bother you I wouldn't recommend you even coming to Venice)

Very pretty Bridge which has good views along the grande canal. There are plenty of shops and eateries close by. You can even get a gondola from the Rialto bridge and get great shots from the water.
