If you're in Venice, you will feel as if you're in a fairy tale. There are romantic canals and beautiful gondolas everywhere. Furthermore, the Italian vibes there are great as well! Hence, Venice is one of the best places in Italy to take beautiful photos.
1. The West Side of the Rialto Bridge
The west side of the Rialto Bridge is perfect for photos. From here, you have an amazing view of the bridge.
The Grand Canal in Venice has four bridges, and the Rialto Bridge is the oldest one. It's a very popular sight for tourists, because it looks beautiful and the history is great! The first construction of this bridge was in 1173. But, through the years people rebuilt it several times. The construction of the current bridge started in 1588 and it was ready in 1591. It's very impressive that the construction is so old! Furthermore, the Rialto Bridge connects San Polo and San Marco.
When you're in Venice, you will notice that it's almost always very busy on the Rialto Bridge! The area surrounding the bridge is great with many shops and restaurants.
This is one of the best Instagram photo spots in Venice, because the bridge is very typical for Venice. Furthermore, it looks stunning. The blue water makes it even more beautiful!
Furthermore, it's lovely to sit at this place. Besides having a beautiful view of the bridge, you will also see many boats and gondolas from here. It's a very nice place to sit down if you're in Venice for a long time.
The red poles here are beautiful as well. These poles add more colour to your photo!
2. Pier behind hotel San Moise
This is spot is by far my favourite place in Venice. Here, you find everything that's great about Venice. There's a cute canal, there are beautiful Venetian houses and gorgeous gondolas. But, there's one large difference with all other places. This place is completely private! It's a bit hidden, which is amazing. Since it's private, it's very convenient to take photos here. There aren't people in the background and it's also very quiet. This is one of the best Instagram photo spots in Venice for sure!
Furthermore, this isn't only a great photo spot. It's definitely the best place to relax for a while! If you are in Venice with your partner, then this is alsos the perfect place for some romantic moments. I'd recommend buying pizza for takeaway and having dinner at this romantic hidden gem. Enjoy the gondolas that keep passing by and have the perfect Venice experience!
3. The other side of Rialto bridge
The Rialto Bridge is very beautiful and this is another side where you can take photos. Even though the Rialto Bridge is very pretty at photo spot 1, you can capture the bridge better from here. It's closer to the bridge and that's great!
You can do several poses here. For example, you can sit where I'm sitting. Furthermore, I'd recommend wearing something blue or green, as it matches the water! If you love the Rialto Bridge, this is one of the best Instagram photo spots in Venice.
4. The view from Ca' d'Oro
Ca' d'Oro is one of the oldest palaces of Venice. It's in Venice since 1430, which is very impressive. Furthermore, nowadays it is also a museum. Here, you can see all kinds of artworks that Giorgio Franchetti collected. Moreover, the state also added a large collection after that. There are many sculptures and paintings here. These paintings are from Venice and from Flanders. It's very interesting to have a look at the paintings and sculptures! I'd recommend going to this museum, because it's very fun to also learn a bit while you're in the city.
Furthermore, this is also one of the best Instagram photo spots in Venice! If you go inside Ca' d'Oro, you will have an amazing view of the Grand Canal. From there you see the blue water, the pretty boats and some of the houses. In short, the perfect photo spot! Also, it's great if you want to take some photos without the crowds.

You see some boats, the water and the beautiful houses here. Furthermore, the colours are stunning at this spot!
I'd recommend trying different angles here! The pillars are very photogenic and you can take many kinds of photos here. Even though I love the symmetry of the first photo, it's stunning from the side as well!

The streets in Venice are lovely and the colours of the streets are amazing. This is one of the best Instagram photo spots in Venice, because you can capture a real Venetian street.
Furthermore, I made this photo in the afternoon in August and there were no crowds at all! If you already visited Venice, you might know that it's always very busy. Especially in summer, it's hard to find a quiet place. Thus, it's very special that this spot isn't very crowded!
7. The bridge of Hotel Ca' dei Conti
Hotel Ca' dei Conti Venice is an amazing 4-star hotel. This hotel is very close to St. Mark's Square, so the location is perfect. The hotel is very beautiful from the outside and the rooms are great as well. If you're still looking for a hotel to stay, I'd recommend having a look at this one!

If you want to capture one of the things Venice is most famous for, then you should definitely go to this place. Here, you can find many traditional gondolas! There are many gondolas next to each other, so it's a very cute place to take great photos.
If you're in Venice, you can also go on a gondola. There are gondolas everywhere and most of the time you can immediately hop on one. It can be a bit expensive, but it's definitely a great experience! If you're in Venice on a budget, you could try to split the cost with other tourists that want to go on a gondola!
9. Ponte Chiodo from far away
The Ponte Chiode is a old bridge that has no railing. It's very beautiful that this bridge has no railing, as that's very unique. In the past, there were several bridges in Venice without a railing. But, nowadays, Ponte Chiodo is the last one of its kind. The bridge leads to a wonderful hotel where you can stay.
Besides that, this photo spot is also great because of the beautiful canal. As you see on my photos, there are also gondolas, which is amazing! The houses in the background are beautiful as well. Especially the orange buidling is very photogenic.
