Venice, Italy The Bridge of Sighs. ahhhhhh I have been here and seen that bridge and it is so pretty. Long ago people that were being executed would walk across the bridge and sigh which is where it got it's name.
The Bridge of Sighs, in Venice, connects the Doge& Palace to the old Prisons. The bridge owes its name to Lord Byron, and it comes from the suggestion that prisoners would sigh crossing the bridge toward their dungeon.
