Venice Rialto Market
Venice, in the northeastern corner of Italy, literally captivated me the minute I arrived. I knew from the moment I stepped off the train and was greeted by the bustling canal and buildings floating on water that this enchanting city would be unforgettable. I’m anxious to share more about Venice in my Italy Reflections series; however, for today’s letter “V”, I thought I’d share some pictures from our time browsing through the Venice Rialto Market. It’s fascinating to think that all the fruit and vegetables, just like all other things in Venice, are delivered to the market by boat. It was just as much fun to stand at the canal and watch this being orchestrated as it was taking in the sights and sounds. This bustling, open air market is not only popular with visitors but a weekly staple for locals to grab the freshest produce and fish in the city.
You can get to the Market by crossing over the Rialto Bridge, the most famous and busiest bridge in Venice. You’ll most likely have to wait your turn to snag a section for the perfect photo opportunity, but it’s worth it.
