The Bridge of Sighs (Italian: Ponte dei Sospiri, Venetian: Ponte de i Sospiri) is a bridge in Venice, Italy. The enclosed bridge is made of white limestone, has windows with stone bars, passes over the Rio di Palazzo, and connects the New Prison (Prigioni Nuove) to the interrogation rooms in the Doge's Palace. It was designed by Antonio Contino, whose uncle Antonio da Ponte designed the Rialto Bridge, and it was built in 1600.

Thank you very much Janet, Gail, Terry, Oscar and Tammy for your wonderful comments! Gail, I chose the night image exactly because of the dramatic mood, as the bridge was the way from the interrogation room to the prison. Oscar, it has a so fantastic history that deserves to be written. #11825379
