The Spectacular Rialto Bridge in Venice

The present structure of this bridge was constructed between 1588 and 1591; it is durable and strong unlike the wooden bridges that were used earlier. Rialto Bridge has 24-foot arch that was created on around twelve thousand wooden pilings. Ponte di Rialto was designed by architect, Antonio da Ponte and it has 3 walkways. You can take a water bus or a gondola ride to reach this bridge. In addition, if you are at the train station then you just need to follow the signboards that direct you towards it.
The Gorgeous Grand Canal in Venice
Whenever you visit Rialto Bridge, you should tour the Grand Canal as well. Grand Canal is the biggest and perhaps the oldest canal in Venice. It is over four kilometers long and around 5 meters in deep at certain points. Touring the Grand Canal on a ferryboat or a gondola is among the favorite activities of tourists visiting Venice. A ferryboat leaves every day from Santa Lucia Station and takes visitors to St. Mark's Square. If you want to go on a beautiful sightseeing trip, do take this ferryboat ride.
