    There is a story saying that if a couple kisses under the Bridge of Sighs, while drifting below on a gondola at sunset, they will enjoy eternal love. You may want to try it!

    The bridge name, given by Lord Byron in the 19th century, is fanciful as the days of summary executions were over by the time the bridge was built and the cells were for small-time criminals.

    Venice's Bridge of Sighs. The legend says that if you kiss your lover on a gondola at sunset under the bridge then you’ll be assured eternal love. Read more

    Great view, great legend. However taking a picture can be a hard task. Hoards of crowds scrambling to get a photo clicked :).

    This must-see bridge passes over the Rio di Palazzo designed by the famous Antoni Contino. Called as such because it's the last view of Venice that convicts got to see before being imprisoned.

    The bridge of sighs appears at the end of From Russia with Love (1963), although the two lead characters only appear with the bridge backprojected.

    The Bridge of Sighs was the last view of Venice that convicts saw before their imprisonment. The bridge name, comes from the suggestions that prisoners would sigh before taken down to their cell

    I like that I had the opportunity to get on the Bridge of sighs and in the prisons. Different view to Venice.

    Also known as the bridge of sighs in reference to the prisoners sighing on the boat when passing underneath the bridge, knowing they were near prison.

    If you get right light and the gondola in time, your shot is just perfect.

    Named because prisoners had sighed at their final view of beautiful Venice through the window before being taken down to their cells.

    Il ponte è bellissimo e conoscerne la storia fa un po impressione, un consiglio se amate le fotografie, girando tra i vicoli potete trovare qualche punto dal quale rubare degli scatti particolari ;)

    Durant la visite du Pallazo Ducale, il est possible de passer dans le pont des soupirs pour se rendre dans l'ancienne prison.

    Essa ponte é muito poética, foi construída para ser uma prisão e leva esse nome porque os prisioneiros suspiravam ao passar por dentro, lembrando da liberdade perdida.

    Ponte construída para ligar o palácio a prisão local. Seu nome deriva dos suspiros dos prisioneiros que eram levados a julgamento. Hoje dizem que é em razão dos suspiros dos casais apaixonados.

    Gli ultimi sopsiri di coloro che stavano per essere condannati, o forse l'ultimo sguardo verso quel mondo libero. Leggende che vivono ancora oggi, fotografate da turisti di tutto il mondo.

    Haritasız gezemezsiniz. Venedik içi konaklama pahalı, bu yüzden adanın dışında konaklamak daha mantıklı (trenle çok kolay gelebilirsiniz) Pazar günü çoğu yer kapalı. Tadını çıkarın harika bir yer.

    O cenário da ponte é muito bonito; ela por dentro lembra bem seu objetivo: transportar presos para a prisão.

    Era il ponte che collegava le sale dei tribunali nel Palazzo Ducale alle Prigioni Nuove, derivanti da un ampliamento del Palazzo e divise dal corpo principale da un piccolo canale. Read more

    Türkçesi ahlar vahlar köprüsü. Suçlular yargılandıktan sonra, hapisaneye direk bu köprüyü kullanarak geçermiş ve burda son kez venediği görüp işledikleri suç yüzünden iç çekip ah vah ederlermiş.
