The Rialto Bridge or the Ponte di Rialto is the oldest of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice, and without a doubt, the most renowned. Every year millions of tourists cross it. Connecting the sestieri (districts) of San Marco and San Polo, it has been rebuilt several times since its first construction as a pontoon bridge in 1173, and is now a significant tourist attraction in the city.
