Rialto Bridge

Thursday continued

During our water bus ride back on the Grand Canal, we found seats outside on the back of the vaporetto and took more photos on our way back to San Marco. We saw a number of people having gondola rides on the Grand Canal near the Rialto Bridge and couldn't image that they would be fun in such a congested area.
