Photo: Venice Landmark Ponte Di Rialto

The Ponte di Rialto is one Venice landmark everyone knows and is one of the most famous bridges not only in Italy, but possibly in the world.

The Ponte di Rialto, the Rialto Bridge, is a Venice landmark which is usually high on the list of places to see when visiting the romantic city of Venice in Italy. The Ponte di Rialto is one of the most famous bridges in Italy and is familiar to everyone who has enjoyed William Shakespeare's 'Merchant of Venice'.

As late as the 19th century the Rialto Bridge was the only bridge crossing the Grand Canal of Venice. The Ponte di Rialto was built on the bend of the Grand Canal as it turns in a northwest direction through the city of Venice, Italy.
