My wife certainly enjoyed browsing the market stalls in Rialto. Much more than I did. There were lots of stalls. Fresh food, vegetable and fishes. Some of the smells were a bit on the strong side.

As part of our tour, we got off our water taxi by the Rialto Market. Unfortunately it was late afternoon so a number of stalls were empty already.

This market is only a couple minute walk from the Rialto bridge and worth a quick stop. The colors are vibrant and the products are beautifully arranged.

The Rialto Bridge is central to everything in Venice and if you walk anywhere you will walk across this beautiful bridge (great selfie spot as well!) The market is literally within minutes and is 100% worth a look. Beautiful types of fish, amazing smells and...More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San

There are plenty of flowers, both fresh and dried, at the market. I saw many shops nearby and others in town that had flowers. It is always best to go early in the day for the largest selection of both food and flowers! Good... More
