“Main Connection to everywhere!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

If you follow the signs to the Realto, you can pretty much track the best parts of venice on foot.
the sings are everywhere and easy to follow.

The bridge itself is awesome, really busy, lots of stores on it. Great place to take pics as well.

This bridge connects the main parts of Venice so if you are in Venice, you will be at the Realto!

“Most romantic”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

The Rialto, particularly at night, is so Romantics with great views and pictures to be had on the Grand Canal as gondolas and boats pass below. The East side has good shopping and Gelato, the West side has nice restaurants.

“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.

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.
