Trying to unlock the secrets of the Floating city ❤
📍 Ponte dei Sospiri, Venice 🇮🇹
One of the most recognised landmarks of Venice - The Bridge of Sighs or Ponte dei Sospiri in Italian 🇮🇹
Every day tourists flock to take its picture, but only few now the real history of the famous bridge 🙈. And fewer understand that it is more closely linked to death & imprisonment than love & romance❤.
Fun fact 🇮🇹: The Bridge of Sighs doesn't get name from the sighs of couples in love when they see the pretty bridge... The bridge was built as a passageway between the magnificent Palazzo Ducale (home to the city' s ruler and also the court of justice) and the dark prison. The Pone dei Sospiri actually took its name from the sighs of prisoners being led to trial ❌.
