bridge of sighs, venice, italyThe Bridge of Sighs connects the old prison in Venice to the interrogation rooms in the Doge's Palace. The bridge was built in 1600, but the current name is from the 1800's when Lord Byron made up the story that condemned prisoners would cross the bridge to their execution and sigh over their last view of Venice.
