It's the famous market of fruit, vegetables and fish, next to the amazing Rialto Bridge, characterized by the typical atmosphere of the authentic Venice life-style. The products come from Sant'Erasmo, the lagoon island completely covered by vegetable gardens. Early in the morning, when the area is still quiet, it's a pleasure take a walk in the market, looking at the preparation of the stands with the goods carried by hand from the warehouses.
