Tour 3: Rialto Bridge
The centerpiece of this third tour in the city of Venice is the Rialto Bridge, the oldest and most famous of the city. At every hour of the day you will see tourists who are taking selfies and pictures from here, but you will be lucky enough to admire them by the waters. You will be able to see the various typical shops and restaurants around the bridge; the growing importance of the market that takes place near the bridge led to renaming it in this way around 1250.
Once it was called Ponte della Moneta since, at its eastern end, the mint was located. But why don’t you try to test the culture of your gondolier to get more historical information on this wonderful masterpiece? He will certainly be happy to provide it to you while pushing the gondola towards Ca 'D'oro, where you can be dazzled by the eponymous Palazzo Ca' D'oro, whose facade seems to have been covered with the precious metal.

”Ho visto due colombi andare in alto(Voga e va)
volevan fare il nido in paradiso
e son volati a nozze su Rialto
ed han lanciato un grido:
"Venezia nostra sei il più bel nido".
