On Sunday morning, head to one of the four bridges that span over Canal Grande. Rialto Bridge, the oldest and the most renowned in Venice, is situated in what was known as the most commercial part of the city. However, the area around Rialto Bridge has maintained the mercantile environment, and not far from it is the Rialto Market, one of the most ancient in the city. Initially built as a simple wooden bridge, today is considered one of the architectural masterpieces of the lagoon city. Of curious note is that some twelve thousand wooden pilings support the structure. The bridge has three roadways. The central one is the biggest, while the two lateral house twenty-four tiny artisan shops. The bridge offers a spectacular view of the thoroughfares while the base reliefs depict and recall the legendary foundation of the Venetian Republic. Photo credit: Design Your Italy
