The Rialto Bridge (Ponte di Rialto; Ponte de Rialto) is the oldest of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy.

The development and importance of the Rialto market on the eastern bank increased traffic on the floating bridge, so it was replaced in 1255 by a wooden bridge.

San Giacomo di Rialto is a church in the sestiere of San Polo, Venice, northern Italy.

The addition of Rialto to the name distinguishes this church from its namesake San Giacomo dell'Orio found in the sestiere of Santa Croce, on the same side of the Grand Canal.
