We took a vaporetto to San Silvestro, a stop near the Rialto Bridge, for a walk around the neighborhood near the Rialto Markets. Here's an alley scene near San Silvestro.

The market was packed full of people the day we went, both tourists and locals doing their shopping.

Continuing with our tour, we took a vaporetto back to Dorsoduro, the neighborhood right across the Grand Canal from our hotel. We wanted to get a close up look at the big church, Santa Maria della Salute, that we could see from our hotel room window.
