Ponte dei Sospiri, Venice: 138 reviews and 210 photos


While you are visiting the Ducale Palace take a walk across the Bridge of Sighs into the Venitian Prision. The bridge is called The Bridge of Sighs because once you were sent to a Venitian prision is was said that you were never released and that it was nearly impossible to escape. However, rumor does have it that Cassanova was the only man to escape the Venitian prision.
