Ponte dei Sospiri (Bridge of Sighs)

3 saves

Recommendation by Lemi

The Ponte dei Sospiri was a private passage that connected the Doge’s Palace to the Prigioni Nuove (New Prison). It is imagined that on the bridge, convicts would steal their last glance at the beautiful city outside before serving their sentences. This tragic tradition would give the Ponte dei Sospiri its nickname, The Bridge of Sighs. The limestone walkway is best shot from the outside, right across on the Ponte della Paglia. The canal runs under both bridges where a few gondolas pass regularly. Take a boat and snap a few shots from the unique vantage point.
