  Rialto Bridge
by clairegeordio

This is a must when visiting Venice! The Rialto Bridge was commissioned in 1588 and finished in 1592. This was the only way to cross the Grand Canal until the Accademia Bridge was built in 1854. The area surrounding the Rialto Bridge is nice and lively with many outdoor cafes to sit at and admire the bridge from.

Directions: Many signs to follow on walls from all around Venice!
