Rialto Markets - Venice
This is coming off the east side of the Rialto Bridge - the markets are ahead and to the right

Thursday continued

Crossing the Rialto Bridge, we entered first the Erberia (Vegetable Market) and after a short walk, the Pescheria (Fish Market). These markets have been located near the banks of the Grand Canal for nearly 1,000 years. They have diminished in size, but are still a neat place to see some of the real Venice.

The busiest time in the Rialto Markets is just after dawn, but they were still interesting at 10AM
