Reposting for this week’s photo challenge, bridge.
There are many bridges in Venice, but I only managed to take pictures of five of them. There were so many things to see and do that I neglected to pay more attention to Venice’s bridges. Thankfully, I was able to take photos of three out of four bridges that cross the Grand Canal. The other two are deserving of attention due to their history and the beautiful scene they present, respectively.
Bridge of SighsThe Bridge of Sighs connects the Doge’s Palace to the New Prison. The story goes it is called as such because prisoners sigh when they pass through the bridge as they take their final gaze of the beauty of Venice from the bridge’s window.
Mystery Bridge (to me)The name of this bridge is a mystery only to me. Everyone in Venice, I’m guessing, knows the name of this bridge. I took a picture of it as I could not resist the beautiful scene before me.
