Rialto Bridge Wheelchair Accessible Tours
Venice wheelchair users Rialto Bridge accessible Italian tours is the most famous of the bridges that cross the Grand Canal.
In this area, which originally housed the food market, there has always been a canal crossing, at first, a simple bridge of boats, and later a real wooden, made from two inclined ramps with a mobile section in the middle, in order to allow the passage of ships.
Beginning in 1524, artists and architects, including Sansovino, Palladio, and Michelangelo, began submitting blueprints for the new project.
But no plan was chosen until 1588, when municipal architect Antonio da Ponte was awarded the commission.
Interestingly, da Ponte was the uncle of Antonio Contino, architect of Venice's other unmistakable bridge.
