While taking a stroll through Venice make sure you venture over this bridge. There are many bridges within Venice of infinite variety. This is one of the larger and extremely well maintained so is even more visually stimulating.

The view at the top of the bridge is very nice, but if you don't like the smell of smoke or a lot of people I wouldn't recommend going here (if those two things bother you I wouldn't recommend you even coming to Venice)

Very pretty Bridge which has good views along the grande canal. There are plenty of shops and eateries close by. You can even get a gondola from the Rialto bridge and get great shots from the water.

A tourist haven . The view from the river taxi left me disappointed. Instead of the majestic view of the architecture as the bridge straddling the canal with the merchants hustling and bustling in a picturesque idle, nope due to the shops the view is of the bleak black wooden panels. However a good viewing point for the grand canal.

The quintesential tourist attraction in this city, not to be missed. A picture haven to remember your trip. Shopping central, too. Splurge at one of the restaurants that line the grand canal to linger in the evening mist. Great for lovers of all ages.

You can't visit Venice without seeing, and crossing the Rialto Bridge! It's elegant and so iconic of this beautiful and romantic city.

Still a beautiful vista. The grand canal with all of it's glory plus the shopping in this area is vast. I bought so many things for gifts and so reasonable. A must for everyone visiting Venice!

Nice view, many shops, many interesting people, nice view, and it's close to many other interesting places. You can just sit there and watch people passing.
