Just like other places in Venice it is ordinary and over hyped. Entire Venice is overhyped and crowded for an very ordinary place

The Rialto Bridge is one of the loveliest bridges in Venice, I would highly recommend seeing it. There is also some lovely bars and restaurants nearby, and only 5 minutes walk to San Marco Square.

The Rialto Bridge (Italian: Ponte di Rialto) is one of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. It is the oldest bridge across the canal, and was the dividing line for the districts of San Marco and San Polo. Nowdays has a lot of shops where you can find different itens and souvenirs of the city.

Be careful with your belongings. I recommend eating at a restaurant near here because it is so romantic at night.

Beautiful place. Venice is simply stunning. It doesn't disappoint and it's exactly as you see in the movies. The bridge is well worth a visit but very busy. And I've been warned by many different people about pick pockets ... so watch your valuables. It's incredible but so busy. We visited out of season and you still couldn't move for... More

It is the oldest bridge on Grand Canal. venetians waited for a century to have this bridge after the original bridge collapsed. It is approximately 350 years old bridge. A great photo capture location on the canal. Thousands of visitors capture millions of photos everyday on this bridge.
