The Rialto Bridge

Recommended
With its humped shape covered with arches, this bridge is emblematic of Venice. So it shouldn't surprise us to see it besieged by a crowd coming to take "the" photo of the Grand Canal, and the small shops, once occupied by bankers and financiers, that are today souvenir shops. Built in 1591 by Antonio Da Ponte, it was designed to allow navigation on the grand Canal.
