    Ponte dei Sospiri (Bridge of Sighs)

    Piazza San Marco 1
    Venice, 30124
    Some legends say that the Ponte dei Sospiri was called the Bridge of Sighs because it was a rendezvous for lovers; however, the truth tells a much sadder tale. It was the last glimpse of freedom for convicts as they headed to their prisons. This enclosed link built in 1600 is made of white limestone. However, this Baroque bridge, designed by Antonio Contino, still has a very romantic air to it, and remains an important historical landmark in Venice today.
