Venice has more than 400 bridges, but the Rialto Bridge, built in 1588, is the most famous. It spans the Grand Canal. Shops and tourists line the bridge from end to end.
Gondolas, water taxis, vaporetti, and pleasure boats pass under it. It is very impressive during the day, but I think it is romantic and dramatic in the evening when it is lit and surrounded by the many tables filled with diners. A little music from a passing singing gondolier...and the mood is set for amore!
