Venetian Rialto Bridge Landmark Bead in Sterling Silver by Carina
One of the most famous landmarks of Venice is the Rialto Bridge, which crosses the Grand Canal. The Rialto Bridge began as a simple crossing of wooden boats, then became a wooden bridge, and soon evolved into the current stone arch dating from the late 1500s. The bridge is formed by two inclined ramps, with wonderful shops selling Venetian jewelry and goods on each side. It's a shopping paradise.
