Rialto Bridge, once the sole bridge spanning the Grand Canal, represents the site of the island’s first colony, Rivus Altus (high bank). It was built in 1588, 150 years after a previous wooden bridge collapsed. Two busy streets and a double set of stores are supported by this stone arch. Image by and from Pixabay
