Rialto Bridge

Weeeeeeee! Glad to join the fun again on ABC Wednesday!

My entry for today's letter R is a popular architectural icon in Venice, the Rialto Bridge. I took the photo on board a vaporetto early morning as we were about to leave for Milan.


Rialto Bridge or Ponte De Rialto is the oldest of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal of Venice. The bridge has three walkways: two along the outer balustrades, and a wider central walkway leading between two rows of small shops that sell jewelry, linens, Murano glass, and other items for the tourist trade.

What a great shot of the bridge and a great one for the R day! Have been to Italy, but not to Venice and I've always regretted that! Have a wonderful week!

I love that bridge, it always looks so tranquil (which it definitely is not). Great R

Oh, beautiful! I hope to see it for myself, for we have a short break booked next week! Fingers crossed that the ash doesn't stop us.

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)

A stunning photo of a very beautiful bridge. I'm sure the photo cannot compare to seeing it in person.
