Pictures of Rialto Bridge and Rialto Fish Market

Rialto, the Heart of Venice

By

Enjoy these pictures of the Rialto Bridge and Rialto Fish Market in Venice, Italy. The Rialto Bridge and market area is at the center of Venice, linking the San Marco and San Polo neighborhoods - see Venice Sestiere Map for the location.

The Rialto Bridge, dating from the late 16th century, is the main bridge crossing Venice's Grand Canal. The bridge is lined with shops and often crowded with tourists since it's one of Venice's top sights. It's not hard to find as there are signs pointing to Rialto Bridge in most parts of Venice.

The Rialto Market, in San Polo sestiere, is older than the bridge and has been Venice's top fish and produce market for about 1000 years. It's a good place to wander around and there are several good, inexpensive places to eat near the market.
