Every time I arrived here the market had closed or the last few vendors were packing away! Nevertheless, this was one of my favourite stops as it lead to countless shops, eateries and you could walk to Rialto bridge. I recommend this route, be mindful,...More

My wife certainly enjoyed browsing the market stalls in Rialto. Much more than I did. There were lots of stalls. Fresh food, vegetable and fishes. Some of the smells were a bit on the strong side.

As part of our tour, we got off our water taxi by the Rialto Market. Unfortunately it was late afternoon so a number of stalls were empty already.

This is a great, classic old fresh food and fish market. The fish market is especially fun to visit - all sorts of varieties of seafood from the day's catch. Even seagulls got in on the act as we watched them swoop in and steal...More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San

There are plenty of flowers, both fresh and dried, at the market. I saw many shops nearby and others in town that had flowers. It is always best to go early in the day for the largest selection of both food and flowers! Good... More
