Ponte dei Sospiri, Venice: 138 reviews and 210 photos


This Bridge was built in 1600's and this was the last place that prisoners could see Venice.
We didn't see inside cause we had a limitede time.

However if you want to see the inside you have to book a Doge's Palace tour.This 90-minute tour is conducted in Italian; it also includes the prisons, torture chambers, and other rooms that normally aren't open to visitors. From June through September, tours are scheduled daily except Wednesdays at 10 a.m. and noon. Reserve at least a day in advance, since the number of visitors is limited.
