  Ponte dei Sospiri
by Profsmiley

Favorite thing: We had limited time in Venice - so to make the most of it, we walked around the city. Starting from the Piazza San Marco, we crossed the Grand Canale over Ponte Rialto. Then walked towards the Ponte dell Academia passing through numerous charming campos and canals... And completed the tour by reaching Piazza San Marco again.

It's quite easy to navigate through Venice once you figure out all the important venue names. There are signs all over the city, follow them if it's your first time. Otherwise, it's easy to find yourself in a maze :)

Fondest memory: Taking this picture of Ponte dei Sospiri (Bridge of Sighs). The gondols moving along quietly... After a long day of exploring Venice, it was telling me - 'here, life goes on as it is... no matter how many tourists come along...'
