"The best view to enjoy the..." Bridges Tip by naranja

Bridges, Venice: 62 reviews and 71 photos


Favorite thing: The best view to enjoy the Ponte dei Sospiri is from the Ponte della Paglia (Straw Bridge), made from stone of Istria. The covered Bridge of Sighs is connecting the Palazzo Ducale with the Old Prison. The name of the famous bridge comes, as the legend tells, from the wails of the prisoners about to be led to the inquisitor.
