    95 reviews

    One interesting aspect of the iconic Rialto Bridge is the padlocks. Apparently inspired by "I Want You", the 2006 novel by Federico Moccia, this practice involves couples writing their names on their padlock, swearing eternal love and throwing the keys into the Grand Canal below. There were a lot of locks of love, when Gayle and I were there and ...

    We arrived in Venice via Vaporetto...Joining us were business men and women carrying briefcases, shoppers with their shopping carts, and students going to school....There are no cars here, so boats are the required mode of transportation. There are no taxis, firetrucks, ambulances, or police cars on the island...Instead, there are boats....everywhere.

    Rialto Markets

    4
    27 reviews

    It's best to arrive early if you want to see the Erberia (vegetable market) and Pescheria (fish market) in full swing. The barges start arriving at dawn, and the vendors are bargaining with customers by 08:00. The wholesalers and most of the retailers close up shop by midday, so stock up on fruit and photo opportunities before lunch!

    I did the typical tourist thing and sat in the Piazza San Marco with a glass of wine and nibbles from the Cafe Florian while listening to the band playing. A wonderful experience. I didn't go inside the Cafe, though. But the service was fine.

    This historic shipyard and armory is great for a quick stop, although I personally didn't spend much time here. As with the other buildings from this time period, the structure is both imposing and beautiful. Great pictures here!
