What people are saying:

The Venice Bridge of Sigh (Ponte dei Sospiri) is a baroque stone bridge located near the Piazza San Marco in Venice, Italy, on the side of the Duke's Palace (the Governor's Palace). There are several bridges in the canal waterway, and this bridge of sigh is a sealed arch bridge, from inside out can only pass through the small window on the bridge. The bridge of sighs connects the two ends of the court and the prison, and is often named for the end of life, as death row prisoners pass through it, often just before execution. It is one of the most famous bridges in Venice.

Additional Information

Introduction

Today, custom holds that lovers should kiss under the bridge in order to seal their fate as soul mates. Oddly, the bridge got its name from the sullen prisoners' exasperations as they were ferried across the bridge, from the prison to the courts. Despite its somber purpose, the bridge actually looks very romantic from the outside-- perfect for a great photo.
