  • Among the cries of fish vendors, Rivo Alto where very probably developed the nucleus of Venice, the Rialto market, retains its old charm, chaotic and full of "smell" of fish and shellfish. Visit inevitable between the benches, at least once for the tourist that is repeated for those who want to immerse themselves in an authentic and unchanging from centuries past who buy fresh produce and locally produced.

  • Finally found a place with some fresh products. Fish and sea food can be found here and many market stands with greens and fruits. TIP: Try to buy from local people instead, you can easily recognize them. They will print checks so you know the price you need to pay. And mind the opening/closing hours - visit the market bin morning.
  • The market is impressive. We bought a lot of fresh seafood there.
  • If you have come to Venice...you have to come to this place... The food options, the charm of bridge and then the superb morning food market. It's not one to be missed
  • Fantastic vibrant fish/veg market. Makes me long for an apartment so I can cook with all that lovely fresh food.
  • This Mercato is fantastic. Fresh fish and vegetables. A must see while in Venice. Very busy and crowded at times.
