“Overcrowded tourist spot but a 'must do'”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

A must visit spot but get up early in the morning to enjoy the serenity without the hoards (and I mean HOARDS!) of tourists and tacky shops selling tuk. Much better photos early morning as well.

“Shops on Top”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

This is one of the few bridges in the world where there are shops on the bridge itself. There are two streets for people and three rows of shops. Most of the prices are on the expensive side however in comparsion to other tourist areas its not really that expensive at all. It is still ok.

“Unique.”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

One of the iconic landmarks in Venice. Crammed with tourists and traders during the summer, it can be rather crowded. Still worth a look and walk up the stairs. The walkways go either side of the Grand Canal, so you can take photo's from all angles.

“Iconic landmark”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

One of the major things to see when in Venice, always busy and crowded.
When we were there one evening there was a real downpour and it provided a great place to shelter!
Lots of shops in this area, some more expensive due to location. Not to be missed.

“beautiful!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

This is a place you have to see if you visit Venice. It has a wonderful view from both sides where you can see the Grand Canal.
