Rialto Bridge in Venice

As promised, here is a photo of the famous Rialto Bridge in Venice. It is the oldest bridge over the Grand Canal and is, of course, for pedestrians only (no cars in Venice). Down the middle of the bridge are two rows of shops and the roads leading up to the bridge are equally full of shops, stalls and people selling just about everything you can imagine. From trinket-like souvenirs to expensive Italian leather shoes and handbags. During the main part of the day the bridge is positively packed with people, speaking every language imaginable.

But when evening comes around, the shops and kiosks close and the place takes on a different atmosphere. It’s a lot more relaxed and people seem to be there to enjoy that quiet time just before dusk, then move on to find a place to eat or enjoy a pre-dinner drink with friends and family.

As you see, this shot is taken at that magic moment. You can see a few people on the right sitting tables and there are relatively few people on the bridge itself.

After taking this shot, Linda and I went off in search for some pasta and Chianti . . . .
