There are bridges, and then there are bridges. And, there is the Rialto.
I was afforded a new view of this remarkably beautiful and historic bridge on my last visit: you can go to the rooftop terrace of the department store, Fondaco dei Tedeschi, and get a panoramic view of this mirage of a city. I’ll be writing a post soon about the store: watch this space.
Gliding under the Rialto is also a thrill, even while on a city bus (the vaporetto).
