Venice has long been famous for its winding canals and Renaissance architecture, and the views it provides of the setting sun. Bright colors also run rampant across Venice, as do uneven streets from the slow sinking city.

The Rialto Bridge is one of the four bridges that crosses the Grand Canal, and is the oldest. After the original bridge collapsed in 1524, designer Antonia da Ponte won the competition to build the version you see today, which was completed in 1591.

You can spend hours leisurely walking around Venice, and then stand on one of its many bridges to enjoy watching all of the life happening below.
