Venice - Bridge of Sighs

The famous Bridge of Sighs connects the Doges' Palace with the prisons, in which Casanova was incarcerated but from which he made a fantastic escape. It dates from the 17th century and owes its name to the lamentations of prisoners who were conducted across it to their place of execution.
