Ponte di Rialto, Italy

From series “Unbelievable and Magnificent Bridges and Viaducts”
Year: 1591. Lenght: 28 meters. Height: 7,5 meters.

The real landmark Venice is the wonderful Rialto - the oldest and one of the most beautiful bridges of the city. The stone bridge connects the banks of the Great Channel and was built in 1591. Originally, the bridge was intended not only to cross the canal, but also to serve as a place for commercial tents. That is why great value was placed on their exterior design. The length of the old bridge is 28 meters. Rialto rises to 7.5 meters above the water surface.

Ponte di Rialto, Italy Just like many years ago, the shops are open, 24 souvenir shops with exclusive goods on the bridge. Rialto Bridge is located in the district of the same name, to whose honor it was named. It must be noted that the bridge was built in the narrowest part of the Great Channel. In 1551 a competition for the best bridge design was declared, in which the most famous and mostly gifted architects of Europe participated. The unsuccessful architect Antonio de Ponte won the competition. The design of the bridge, presented by him, recalled the old wooden bridge, which was used for crossing the canal earlier.

Until 1854 Rialto remained the only crossing over the Grand Canal. In the middle of the 19th century the academy bridge was built. The best way to see the old bridge in every detail - with the gondola or the promenade boat under it to drive. From the bridge, the wonderful view of the Rialto district and the historic sights on the banks of the Grand Canal are open. Next - Bosphorus bridge
