The Bridge of Sighs is in Venice, Italy and connects the Doge’s Palace with the New Prison. The name may derive from the fact that condemned prisoners would sigh when being led over the bridge to prison.
The white limestone bridge was built in 1600 and its design features small windows protected by stone bars. The nearby Doge’s Palace organizes so-called secret tours that allow visitors to walk across the most beautiful bridge in the city.
However, a much better vantage point is from a gondola on the canal below, and tradition says that if you kiss under the bridge, you’ll enjoy eternal love.
