We popped over to see the Rialto Bridge first. The shops along the bridge and the market nearby were closed of course, but it was nice strolling along the canals.
Rialto bridge which also offers one of the best views of Venice. This is the oldest bridge on the canal and a must visit. You can enjoy the views from here or do some shopping at the many stalls on this bridge!
A Venetian local will meet you at the Rialto Bridge with your first stop being the Rialto Fish Market. Almost every restaurant with a seafood menu purchases their fish from here. You will stop for food at a bacaro (Venetian gastropub) for the delicious cicchetti (appetisers) and a glass of spritz, wine or Prosecco. Another dish to try out here is the baccalà, a salted cod dish, that is accompanied by freshly baked bread. Tips shall also be given to avoid the same old touristy restaurants.
Rialto bridge:The Rialto Bridge is one of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal. It is the oldest bridge across the canal, and was the dividing line for the districts of San Marco and San Polo.Rialto Bridge- ponte di Rialto: Is one of the oldest bridges and famous you will see there. The architecture of the bridge and look gives a excellent view of the canal on both sides ( this divides two places named as San polo and San marco). This one really famous for shopping and always crowded with many people. Its a great view of gold, platinum and all kind of jewellers. Attracts many tourists all over the day and worth watching this bridge to have a memorable incidents in life.
Also known as the bell tower of St Mark's Basilica, is open to public to ascent at 8 Euro per person. This place need no further introduction. But too bad it was under renovation when we were there!!! "These two models will be remembered forever to all the people who took this photo..", said my bf. Which is quite true. 20 years later, when I look back at this photo, they will still be there holding each other. XD The worst part of this renovation is that it occurred at both sides of the bridge at the same time.
