The Rialto Bridge (Ponte di Rialto) is one of the three bridges crossing the Canale Grande. It connects the districts of San Polo and San Marco. Built in 1591, it consists of two rows of shops and three footways. The shops only face the middle way, and sell fruits, vegetables and all kinds of tourist stuff. The Rialto Bridge is located about 500 meters north of Saint Mark's Square.
