All reviews bridge of sighs doge's palace outside world covered bridge interrogation rooms palace tour small bridge beautiful bridge across the bridge photo opportunity interesting history beautiful venice both sides taking pictures selfie sticks gondola ride early in the morning
I have to be honest and say that 1st time I laid eyes on it from the outside I thought 'is that it' But then you have to consider it's place in history. Having seen it from the outside I had to get to see...More
The horrible history of the bridge, with two pathways, one in and out is chilling and the conditions unimaginably barbaric - although better than in the flooded lower cells of the actual palace - as prisoners crossed from the Doge's Palace to their new home...More
We had the chance to walk the bridge during the guided doge tour. Did you know the bridge has 2 seperate walkways!
Interesting stories of a bridge which looks very fancy on the out side, but is less glamorous on the in side.
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

Bit late in answering....maybe youve been...see my review for venice...we went wednesday...arrived by boat from punti sabioni...we hadnt pre booked anything. We arrived 9am a good hour and a half b4 the floating cities arrive...cruisers. We did st marks sq amd gondola...u don't need Italian...the same company operate all gondolas...offer three trips of dirrerent duration...ours was about and hr and around 120€. It was more than enough...u go under bridge of sighs...twice...pass Marco polos house and a few other things of interest. Suggest u do these first then Dolces palace...note even at 9 am there was a queue for the tower at st marks....we then went to Rialto bridge straight after gondola ride...glad we did as the streets quickly swarmed as the cruiser tourists came ashore.

Can't see your picture however, the bridge of sighs is just a corridor from one building to another. You can see this passage built of limestone from the following bridges....Ponte Canonica (to the north) & Ponte Della... More
Can't see your picture however, the bridge of sighs is just a corridor from one building to another. You can see this passage built of limestone from the following bridges....Ponte Canonica (to the north) & Ponte Della Paglia (this is the more famous view to the south).
