Venice- Rialto Market help please.

Jump to last reply

We are due to arrive Venice at 8:30 am on a Saturday morning. With getting our luggage and taking the bus to Piazzale Roma, dropping our luggage at our apt (Ca D'Oro vaporetto stop)... if we went straight from there to Rialto, what time do you think we'd arrive there?

Here is my dilemma. I cannot remember what day, nor what time of day, my DD and I visited Rialto last year. But it was FABULOUS! The array of seafood just blew us away. It was the most memorable visit.

I want to share this same experience with my new travel partner, my cousin. But we arrive Saturday morning and depart Tuesday morning for Florence. I know that seafood is not at the market on Sunday or Monday.

So, our options are to go Saturday upon arrival or Tuesday morning early (7-8am) before we depart for Florence.

I would prefer to get this out of the way on Saturday, but my concern is that we might not arrive at the market until 10 or 10:30 and it will not be as terrific (much sold and not full displays) as I remember our experience last year.

I would appreciate it if anyone can tell me for sure... is the seafood portion of the market just as incredible on Tuesdays as it is on Saturdays? What would be "too late" to arrive on Saturday to see the best displays? 10? 11?

Thanks all.
