  Bridge of Sighs
by Luchonda

This small bridge crossing the Rio de Palazzio is, next to the Rialto bridge the most famous photographed attraction of Venice.
No architectual highlight, but many writers from the XIX century wrote about this connection from the prison to the court and made it famous.
