The photo taken from Rialto Bridge, Italian Ponte di Rialto, 500-year-old stone-arch bridge crossing over the narrowest point of the Grand Canal in the heart of Venice. Designed by Antonio da Ponte in the late 16th century. The Bridge crosses the canal at roughly its halfway point.
The bridge is also a gateway to the Rialto Market, a warren of sellers to the west of the span hawking produce, spices, fish and more, and the city’s principal food market since the 11th century.
