The oldest of the four bridges that rest over Venice's Grand Canal, the Rialto Bridge sits proudly in the busiest part of the floating city. Visitors can enjoy its striking architecture, visit the souvenir(纪念品)stalls(货摊),and breathe in Rialto's lively atmosphere.

If you're only seeking the Rialto Bridge, it's best to avoid the crowds. The area is always busy, but early in the morning it is less busy− −or late at night when the markets are shut.

Sunset is a beautiful time to visit, with the southern side of the bridge offering a glorious view of the gondolas((凤尾船)pulling up to the grand buildings lining the canal.

The busiest time on the bridge is from mid-morning, when the day trippers arrive, to the late afternoon. The stalls are moving slowly with customers and it can get a little uncomfortable in the heat.

The Rialto markets are undoubtedly historic, with locals gathering here to shop since the 11th century. If you want to tie the markets in with your trip to the bridge, try to visit early in the morning, when you'll be able to experience the local fish and vegetable market.

The barges(驳船)start arriving at dawn, and the markets are in full swing by 8 :00. This is your best bet for an authentic market experience, as it's when the locals do their shopping and colorful, seasonal produce is plentiful. If you’re lucky, you may be offered free samples(样

品)by the sellers.

The markets are shut on Sunday and Monday, and during the rest of the week they begin to slow down after lunch. It's never exactly quiet in the Rialto area but the earlier you arrive, the more likely you are to enjoy a bit of peace at the bridge.

If you’re there in winter, you’ll have a much quieter experience than in summer. This is when the bridge is decorated with twinkling lights and is a particularly pretty experience.
