"Spanning the Canal Grande"

Spanning the girth of the Grand Canal, the Rialto Bridge was once the only way to get across on foot. The majestic bridge arches dramatically over the murky waters of the canal, allowing ample room for the gondolas and water buses to glide underneath. The bridge was built in record time, between 1588 and 1591, replacing predecessors from the 12th Century onward. Designed by Antonio da Ponte, the bridge is a triumph, having survived unscathed for over four centuries. Today, the Rialto is only one of the four bridges that serves the canal, but remains the most prominent. Small shops selling all kinds of souvenirs and curiosities run the length of the bridge while the Mercato di Rialto is a popular local market nearby.
